Award-winning illustrator Tim Warnes shares a studio at his home near Dorchester in the Dorset countryside with his wife, illustrator Jane Chapman. Tim is best known for illustrating the Little Tiger books, which gave Little Tiger Press not only its name, but its first ever logo too!Review:
"Tim Warnes's Dangerous (February 2015, Little Tiger) is a charming lesson in the perils of judging a book by its cover or, in this instance, a crocodile by its "long scaly lips and snippy-snappy teeth". Better still, it comes with two pages of stickers so kids can label the crocodile, lumpy warts and all." * The Independent * "Packed with new words to learn, use and love, bold, bright and colourful illustrations, and a story that glows with fun, warmth and affection, this enchanting book is ideal for reading and sharing." * Lancashire Evening Post * "Terrific fun. Mole is a delight and, there are two pages of stickers to use for labeling. The whole thing is an absolute gold mine for teachers of 4s to 7s." * Jill R Bennett * "The story perfectly portrays the trials and tribulations of friendship and can help stimulate discussions with children who are trying to understand their own friendships." * Story Snug * "A quirky and unusual story which is a great way to encourage children to develop language skills (although they will think they are just having fun!). It's full of surprises and is a lovely story of friendship." * Parents in Touch * "This book's original premise is fun and wonderfully told - though for read-aloud parents, be prepared to read each and every one of those labels out loud to your child. A great book for expanding their vocabularies while teaching them about unlikely friendships too!" * Read it Daddy * "If I were to write stickers for this [book], they would say: delightful, funny, charming, creative, imaginative, pleasant, endearing, heartwarming, empathetic, sweet, friendly, clever, thought-provoking, quirky, superb, suspenseful, page-turner, genius, treasured, wish-I'd-have-thought-of-it, a favourite." * Anna Marras Blog * "The art is adorable, the story is heartwarming, and the whole book is full of so much humour that it's hard not to giggle (especially at some of the expressions of creatures with labels stuck on!) Dangerous is a great start to thinking of describing words... and increasing vocabulary. Dangerous is one of my top picks of picture books for 2014." * Child Led Chaos *
