Nosy Rosy the anteater is out on her tricycle, poking her big nose into other people's business. She spots Mrs Elephant hanging out her washing and shouts out, "What big pants!" and sees Mr Tiger having lunch with a friend and yells, "You're being greedy!" In short, she annoys all the animals in town with her nosiness, until she spots a thief in Mr Tiger's shop and gets him arrested. Then everyone has to agree that "It's good to be nosy—sometimes!" This is a picture book with a surprise on every page turn and lots of things to count and find on the way. The sheer exuberance of Rosy herself will appeal to a pre-school readership and the story will bear reading and re-reading because of the amount of detail in such a simple storyline.

Peter has been published by Collins before (THE BIG RED BUS RIDE) but this was a while ago, and since then he has been widely published by Brimax, Heinemann and Henderson (now part of DK). He is now back with Collins and we are already planning more books with him for the future.
