Description

Christopher Nibble and his friend Posie are keeping six hairy caterpillars as pets. They look after their pets very carefully but, one day, the caterpillars disappear!

Our gardening guinea pigs become the detectives of Dandeville and, with the help of Mr Rosetti, they solve their minibeast mystery in this bright and beautiful tale.

Reviews

  • Praise for Christopher Nibble: I adored the illustrations - Charlotte Middleton's guinea pig world is eccentrically realised and the strong environmental message doesn't detract from the overriding humour in the story. - Askews Library Service Children's Newsletter
  • When dandelions begin disappearing it's up to Nibbles to rescue the last plant so new seeds can fly through the air, nearly 3-D, on a beautifully evocative spread. - New York Times
  • Middleton's tale of over-consuming and scarcity is direct but not preachy. Using a bold font for emphasis, the text is simple and age appropriate, but the mixed-media illustrations steal the show. A photo of a cabbage is combined with drawn elements such as insects. The library scene is full of humorous book titles that will elicit chuckles from young and old. Every page features something that draws the eye in for a closer look. - School Library Journal
  • ...an absolute delight... Recommended. - thebookbag.co.uk
