Join the birthday celebrations in Acorn Wood with four new 15th anniversary editions of the ever-popular POSTMAN BEAR, FOX'S SOCKS, HIDE-AND-SEEK PIG and RABBIT'S NAP. Bear is writing letters to his friends. But what could his letters be about? Lift the flaps and join Frog, Squirrel and Mole for Bear's special surprise! With sturdy flaps on every spread and rhyming stories that are a joy to read aloud, the TALES FROM ACORN WOOD have been delighting both parents and toddlers for fifteen years. This year we celebrate their unending appeal with four beautifully produced board books and a fresh new cover look with shiny foil. From the award-winning creators of THE GRUFFALO.
