The four books in this board book set – the third in a four-set series – are written and illustrated by Niki Daly.

The concepts are simple and accessible to all toddlers, as anything new they discover in a book needs to be interpreted in their own way. We imagine that the audience may need a gentle and quite overt nudge into the world of images and words and include humour, whimsy and reader participation so that adults also interact with the children and the books.

Niki Daly has chosen the theme of ‘little artists’ covering dance, music, dressing up and painting.
