    • Julia Donaldson Nick Sharratt

      Growing upI grew up in a tall Victorian London house with my parents, grandmother, aunt, uncle, younger sister Mary and cat Geoffrey who was really a prince in disguise Mary and I would argue about which of us would marry him.Mary and I were always creating imaginary characters and mimicking real ones, and I used to write shows and choreograph ballets for us A wind up gramophone wafted out Chopin waltzes.I studied Drama and French at Bristol University, where I met Malcolm, a guitar playing medic to whom I m now married Busking and booksBefore Malcolm and I had our three sons we used to go busking together and I would write special songs for each country the best one was in Italian about pasta The busking led to a career in singing and songwriting, mainly for children s television I became an expert at writing to order on such subjects as guinea pigs, window cleaning and horrible smells We want a song about throwing crumpled up wrapping paper into the bin was a typical request from the BBC I also continued to write grown up songs and perform them in folk clubs and on the radio, and have recently released two CDs of these songs One of my television songs, A SQUASH AND A SQUEEZE, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler It was great to hold the book in my hand without it vanishing in the air the way the songs did This prompted me to unearth some plays I d written for a school reading group, and since then I ve had 20 plays published Most children love acting and it s a tremendous way to improve their reading My real breakthrough was THE GRUFFALO, again illustrated by Axel We work separately he s in London and I m in Glasgow but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes.I really enjoy writing verse, even though it can be fiendishly difficult I used to memorise poems as a child and it means a lot to me when parents tell me their child can recite one of my books.Funnily enough, I find it harder to write not in verse, though I feel I am now getting the hang of it My novel THE GIANTS AND THE JONESES is going to be made into a film by the same team who made the Harry Potter movies, and I have written three books of stories about the anarchic PRINCESS MIRROR BELLE who appears from the mirror and disrupts the life of an otherwise ordinary eight year old I have just finished writing a novel for teenagers.When I m not writing I am often performing, at book festivals and in theatres I really enjoy getting the children in the audience to help me act out the stories and sing the songs When Malcolm can take time off from the hospital he and his guitar come too and it feels as if we ve come full circle back to busking.

    • A charming counting book. Great for learning to count to 10. It is a very clear book that displays the number in number form as well as the number word, which is great for associating the name with the form at an early stage. It also uses rhyme which is fantastic for remembering the numbers. I think this would be fantastic to use in Reception and Early Years, as it flows really nicely and also the illustrations are very clear and the number of objects are very distinct. My favourite page is 'nin [...]




    • A cute rhyming, counting book. Simple with bright colours and fun pictures. My 2.5 year old toddler LOVES this book and it's improved her counting abilities.


    • Superb. My daughter enjoyed it as a baby, and has fallen in love with it again as a two year old now she is getting a grasp for numbers.


    • A great, bright book fun for all ages. On each page hides a snail, butterfly or both. Counting, rhyming, humor - this book has it all!



    • I'm the bad, politically incorrect aunty who gives in and reads 6 bedtime stories instead of one. It'ss easy for a toddler to read and has words with numbers, so presumably it counts as educational. My boys are in college now, parenting is a very different business but me and my nephew definitely liked this book.


    • One Mole Digging a Hole is a story full of funny rhymes, counting and gardening. Each page is illustrated with attractive colourful pictures that hold the interest of even very young children.The humor of the rhymes is emphasized and strengthened by the images presented: we have snakes with garden rakes, bears picking pears,foxes filling boxes(with tomatoes),storks with garden forks,parrots pulling up carrots and even doves in gloves.The book is especially useful as an aid to learn numbers as th [...]


    • An animal-gardening-counting book? It works. The rhymes were cute ("Five storks with garden forks"). My two-year-old son and I loved this one. I did not love the illustrations, which appear to be done by computer (please correct me if you know otherwise; I'm not an expert!). The colors are bright and inviting, but I didn't like the filled-in patterns and the fact that things (animals, flowers) seemed to be sprinkled evenly across the page.But don't let the illustrations keep you from checking ou [...]


    • Another book which I explored with my younger siblings. We feel that this book would really help nursery and foundation stage children to learn how to count and feel that the rhyme would make the the learning fun and memorable. It is a good picture book to share aloud due to the size of the text and illustrations and we feel that other children would be able to join in with the rhymes or even try to guess the rhyme from the bright illustrations.


    • My daughter and I love Julia Donaldson books. They are perfectly designed to be appealing for young children, with bright and bold colours; fun animal characters; lots of rhyming; and just the right amount of detail on each page. "One Mole Digging a Hole" is a great one for summer reading, with its gardening theme, and demonstrates counting and rhyme as well as being a great platform for identifying colours.


    • Who is that in the garden helping to dig a hole? It is one mole!We read this as a part of Babes'n'Books and honestly if was a bit forgettable. I actually had to look up what is in the book to jog my memory. The illustrations were by Nick Sharrat so they were appealing to children.V @ 5 months old.



    • A wonderful counting book with a gardening theme. My 1 year old is obsessed with the little eyes in the hole in the log on the '7' page, and the worm in sunglasses on the last page.
