Feed the Peckish Pets

Carly Madden, illustrated by Natalie Marshall
AUD $14.99

In this fun, interactive board book, children can choose what to feed the pop-out pet characters - picking from four ‘dangly' snacks, hanging from the spine of the book.

The pet animals are hungry! Choose what to feed each pop-up animal...

In Peckish Pets, children are presented with a series of bright and funny pet characters, each with their mouth wide open (a v-fold pop-up), eagerly awaiting a tasty treat. The reader can choose a dangly snack (hanging from the spine of the book) to feed to each animal. Hungry dog might want to chomp on a bone but wouldn't it be funny to give her cat's tasty fish treat instead? What would dog say about that?

This delightful series of pre-school books encourages young children to engage with the book and converse with the parent or carer, form connections between the animal characters and what they like to eat, and to practice hand-eye coordination through play. They can choose to either pick the correct food to give each animal or can engage in 'silly play' by offering knowingly inappropriate foods to each character.
