A fantastic new edition of this joyful and vibrant story about a girl with a big imagination – now packed with lift-the-flap fun!

Poppy lives in an ordinary house with ordinary parents but Poppy is EXTRAORDINARY. You see, her imagination comes ALIVE . . . and sometimes it gets her into a bit of a pickle. Poppy’s room is soon packed with wonderful creatures, which might sound fun, until it starts to go very, VERY wrong! Poppy needs to get rid of all these creatures FAST – but how?

This EXTRAORDINARY new edition is perfect for sharing and reading together – with flaps both big and small for little hands to lift. Ideal for fans of Emma’s other titles, such as Dragon Post; Orion and the Dark; Sidney, Stella and the Moon and the Nibbles the Book Monster series.

Review by Stacey

Poppy Pickle is a young girl with a very large imagination. Usually, her thoughts are just that, imaginary but one day whatever she imagines comes to life, which starts great at the beginning. Chocolate trees, a castle made of cake, etc. Then the creatures that could eat her are imagined and things go downhill rapidly.

Poppy needs to get rid of her imaginary items fast but how can she do it? Especially before her parents find out.

This book is a whole lot of fun. Poppy is a wonderful character, so full of vigour and joy though her imagination gets her into trouble sometimes.

The story is filled with funny moments and contains numerous lift-the-flaps, some quite small, whilst others are bigger than the book. Plus, amazing illustrations fill each page.

Poppy Pickle is a fantastic book for youngsters. Hopefully, it may help them to open their imaginations as well. It is easy to read so perfect for new readers and would work well as a bedtime story too.
