This laugh-out-loud story was the first to be created by the award-winning team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, marking the beginning of the most successful picture book partnership ever. Twenty years after it was originally published, this classic tale of a little old lady, a wise old man and a chaotic collection of larder-raiding, curtain-chewing, jig-dancing animals is as fresh and funny as ever. Macmillan is proud to publish this limited edition 20th anniversary edition, complete with early drawings from Axel's sketchbook and a specially written foreword from Julia herself.

Great book for toddlers

My son loves this book being read to him and pointing out all the animals in the pictures. The words are fun and lyrical and make for an interesting read. Not too long, not too short. Just right for bedtime. Read full review
