"Gloriously silly, there are lots of things to spot in the vivid, detailed pictures, and there is a sweet take-away message about what's really important in life."

For Class 2L, school is about to get a whole lot more fun as Show and Tell is transformed into an out-of-this-world adventure. The stakes are high as an alphabet of classmates vie for the prize, brandishing everything from a seed to an alligator and far, far beyond. Gloriously silly, there are lots of things to spot in the vivid, detailed pictures, and there is a sweet take-away message about what's really important in life. Now in paperback.

"a thoroughly pleasing package"

Finally, Show and Tell by the award-winning Rob Biddulph is a delightful alphabet book, in which class 2L’s show-and-tell competition escalates from Adam’s sunflower seed through Betty’s blue spaghetti all the way to Violet, who shows off Big Ben, and William, who shows off the Sphinx and a pyramid for good measure. Rhyming text, vivid illustrations and a satisfying final message add up to a thoroughly pleasing package.

"From a small seed a delightful tale grows"

No surprise who wins: the reader. We are treated to another classic fable from Biddulph, which itself shows and tells with its excellent moral to take home and put in your tray marked: “How to save the world and make school mornings a bit less stressful.”
