Piglet Bo Is Not Scared!
by Geert De Kockere (Author), Tineke Van Hemeldonck (Illustrator)
Piglet Bo insists that he is not scared. Not scared of anything and not scared of anyone. And if you think he seems scared, well, you’re misunderstanding the situation. Really, Piglet Bo can’t go into the dark cave because he doesn’t want to disturb the bats. And he can’t go into the deep pit because he’s pretty sure the termites are having a birthday party and it would be rude to show up without a gift. But what are those shadows lurking on each page? How long can Piglet Bo’s excuses last?
Geert De Kockere’s whimsical story will capture the hearts of children and adults alike. This playful tale of a pig who just can’t admit he’s afraid is sure to get kids laughing out loud. Tineke Van Hemeldonck’s uniquely evocative mixed-media illustrations bring Piglet Bo Is Not Scared! to life and give it an imaginative, quirky feel. This charming story is for ages three and up.
