The House That Jill Built

Author(s): Phyllis Root

Picture Books

A witty conceit of a favourite nursery rhyme - with over 70 pop-ups and flaps! Jill's little house is so cosy and perfect, all her nursery-rhyme neighbours would like a room of their own. But as Jill's household grows and grows, there's less and less room for Jill and her cat. Peer through the windows, open the fantastic fold-out and peep into the pop-up house to see what storybook characters really get up to when they get home! A humorous and modern twist on an old rhyming favourite - with a resourceful heroine in the form of Jill! With lift-up flaps all the way through, there are also some ingenious surprises awaiting the reader at the end: a fold-out plan of Jill's constructions and a 3-D pop-up of Jill's new house.
