Product description

“Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are the Lennon and McCartney of children’s publishing” Sunday TimesThis fabulous picture book from superstar author and illustrator Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is a riot of slapstick fun and silliness. The Baddies are the meanest, nastiest ghost, witch and troll in the land. They just adore being bad, and fight over who is the worst. When a little girl moves into a nearby cottage, the Baddies can’t wait to scare her out of her wits. But the little girl quickly shows them that you don’t have to be big to be brave, and baddies don’t always win.

  • A brilliant paperback edition for new and old fans alike
  • Perfect read-aloud rhyming text and stunning pictures on every page with lots of details to spot
  • Julia and Axel are the team that have created picture book favourites such as The Gruffalo, Stick Man, Zog and The Smeds and The Smoos – all of which have been made into animated films premiering on BBC1 Christmas Day
