The winner of the 2014 Association of Illustrators' Award for Children's Books, Shh! is the covetable new picture book from Chris Haughton, one of the most exciting new voices in children's literature. From Chris Haughton, the multi award-winning author-illustrator of A Bit Lost and Oh No, George!, comes a picture book about a beautiful bird, four friends and plans gone wrong... The friends are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it - a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply must have it and - shh!- they have a plan. So they tip-toe very slowly, nets poised - "Ready one ... ready two ... ready three ... GO!" But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious foiled plan after another and it's clear that this goofy gang cannot catch that elusive birdie! But the littlest of this group, a quiet spectator up until now, knows that a bit of kindness can go a long way... Will his friends follow his gentle lead or will they get themselves into even more trouble?

Review:

Wonderfully quirky, hilarious and utterly engaging. * Junior * A delight ... a lovely book for reading aloud full of expression and fun. * Daily Mail * Packed with atmosphere ... a journey which no reader is likely to forget. * Independent on Sunday * Picture book perfection. * Metro * Packed with humour and vivid imagery, this book is set to delight young children * Independent on Sunday * Simple text and dynamic artwork combine in acomic story of hapless hunters and an elusive bird * Irish Times * A fiesta for the eyes * Irish Independent * Brilliant . . . a glorious work by a rising star * Big Issue in Scotland * Brilliantly designed and full of humour and quirk * Bookseller * With a minimalist test of just over a hundred words, aided by a judiciously selective use of colour, Haughton entertainingly relates (verbally and visually) the escapades of a group of hapless creatures intent on becoming bird-catchers. Collage and silhouette are employed effectively to enhance the comedy of a situation where, in spite of all the plans in the world, success in capturing the little coloured bird remains elusive. * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Read * Every art-room, every classroom, every home should have multiple copies. -- Leabhair Phaisti Eireann * Inis * Chris Haughton is the master of understated ridiculous, and his newest, Shh! We Have a Plan, is no exception. -- The Bulletin * The Bulletin * Also long listed for the Kate Greenaway medal, this is such a simple tale and yet so effective, largely due to the repetition of the refrains and the striking illustrations. -- Huffington Post * Huffington Post * Chris Haughton is an Irish designer and illustrator and was named one of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators in 2011. -- Mummy Pages * Mummy Pages * Ingenious storytelling and the perfect way to encourage a lifetime of reading. -- Lancashire Evening Post * Lancashire Evening Post * The limited colours, strange little characters and simple short text add to its appeal. * South Wales Evening Post * "Deliciously funny. Instantly retellable." * Times Educational Supplement *
