The first EVER Squishy picture book, Squishy McFluff: Tea with the Queen!
Posted on April 3, 2019. More from Pip’s Blog
I am very excited to be able to write here once again: “Hooray, it’s publication day!”
Yes, today Squishy McFluff: Tea with the Queen officially hits the shelves – and this is especially exciting because it’s Squishy’s first ever picture book!
With six beautiful little books in the series already, we decided some time ago that it would be lovely to see McFluff in a larger format and in full colour, for some seriously brilliant, rhyming bedtime reading.
So I wrote a special story all about Ava and Squishy visiting London’s Buckingham Palace no less. And when they pop inside – to see if they can track down the fancy corgi that Squishy McFluff has heard so much about – they accidentally stumble across another rather regal character!
It was super fun for me to take Squishy and Ava out of their usual surroundings, and to write this story in a slightly different way. Ella got the chance to use a much wider colour palette, and I know you’ll agree that her artwork is absolutely stunning. We really hope you enjoy reading this book as much as we enjoyed making it.
To celebrate the publication of the picture book, we’ve added some new fun activity sheets for you to print out and enjoy at home. Click here to take a look. And don’t forget you can upload a drawing of your own invisible cat (perhaps with its own invisible crown?) – it could end up in our gallery!
Now for even more news – while you’re enjoying Squishy McFluff: Tea with The Queen, Ella and I will be busy working on the seventh book in the Squishy McFluff series. I won’t say too much about it just yet – only that, this time, Ava and Squishy will be having lots more madcap adventures, this time at a CIRCUS!
Squishy McFluff: On With the Show! will be published in June 2020. Watch this space for more news.
