Fresh from the Field — The Day the Costumes Stuck by Toby Morris

4 months ago by

Our inaugural Fresh from the Field for 2017 features one of Beatnik’s recent releases created by Toby Morris.

The Day The Costumes Stuck is a delightfully quirky tale that will stimulate the imagination, and will leave a fun and lasting impression on children. Filled with Toby’s striking and colourful illustrations, this book will bring a smile to all. The moral of the story that ‘everyone has a role to play’ is a valuable lesson for children to discover and enjoy.”

Iggy can’t seem to take off his party costume but his parents don’t seem to notice that Iggy has turned into the boogie monster! But that’s not the weirdest part… A funny, original and heart-warming story destined to become a new family favourite…
