The stunning debut picture book from award-winner Nicola Killen. Who's been getting the carpet dirty? "Not Me!" said Bertie A group of very young children have been making a mess. But when they are asked who did it they all reply innocently, "Not me!" The reader will know the truth straight away though as the clues are there for all to see. An irresistibly charming book for babies and toddlers, full of eye-catching collage and a repetitive, rhyming text that makes it perfect for sharing as a bedtime story. Nicola Killen is a bright new star in the world of picture books, having won the Cambridge Best New Talent Award 2009. Don't miss Not Me!

Nicola Killen Nicola is a recent graduate of the celebrated MA illustration course at Cambridge. Following a successful career in design, she has embarked on a move to children's books - with fantastic results. Not Me! is her first picture book. Nicola lives and works in Cambridge.From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1–On the title page, five children are introduced and largely identified by the clothes they wear and the objects they hold. Jake is into dinosaurs, Paul carries a paintbrush, and so on. Jess the Pup is there, too. The book works as a guessing game. “Who's been dropping all these peas?/Not me! said Louise.” Clues will delight young listeners, who can study the illustrations for tell-tale signs, such as a dinosaur left on the scene. Then an offstage voice pipes up: Who is going to clean up the mess? At the end, Jess the Pup shows his face and, with a wink, ties things up. The illustrations and typeface will melt hearts and delight and inspire potato-printing young readers. The simple, expressive shapes, mostly in muted tones with dapples of red to keep things cheery, are utterly fresh and warm, and the textures feel organic. Children will delight in this sweet-natured picture book.–Sarah Paulson Yarovoy, American Sign Language and English Lower School PS 347, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2010.
