Product Description

A little girl sets off through the jungle to take a bunch of bananas to her grandad. But on the way she meets lots of hungry animals who love bananas too! Each wild animal swaps a banana for a different delicious jungle treat… but will the little girl get her beautiful bananas back again? This delightful retelling of an East African folk tale is told in a wonderful circular style, encouraging children to follow its evolving pattern and chime in when they guess what happens next. The author, Elizabeth Laird, is a Carnegie Medal shortlisted author and former winner of the Smarties Young Judges prize.

When Liz was little, she loved to draw, paint and make things. Her mum used to say she was very good at making a mess (which is still true today!).

She kept drawing and went to art school, where she earned a degree in graphic design. She worked as a designer and art director in the music industry, and her freelance work has appeared on a wide variety of products.

Liz is the author-illustrator of several picture books. Tom Gates is the first series of books she has written and illustrated for older children. They have won several prestigious awards, including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and the Blue Peter Book Award. The books have been translated into forty-one languages worldwide.
