The classic Tim on the tiles in handy take-away format
“Stay on the pavement, okay,” Tim’s father said.
‘Why?’ asked Tim.
“Because it’s dangerous to go off the tiles,” his father said.
As promised, Tim stays on the pavement. Even though the tiles are lifted by road workers, a truck driver, dock workers and even a crane… Text and image in this picture book both tell a different story. Where the text takes the reader along with little Tim – who stays neatly on the tiles and is unaware of any harm – the illustrations show Tim’s father, who repeatedly gets into trouble when trying to reach his son. A book to read and look at again and again, so that’s a good thing: this new format fits in every handbag.
