Overview

Christopher Nibble loves munching dandelion leaves. And he's not alone. All the guinea pigs in Dandeville eat dandelion leaves for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But no-one seems to do anything when the dandelions begin to dwindle. They just carry on munching. In fact the guinea pigs of Dandeville are heading for eco-disaster . . . But that's where Christopher Nibble steps in. He discovers the last dandelion growing outside his bedroom window and, rather than eat it,he does his horticultural research in the library and then nurtures the dandelion patiently until it has produced a perfect head of tiny seeds. Then he blows the seeds from a hill high over Dandeville so that each dandelion seedling takes root and grows into a new plant. Charlotte Middleton hasillustrated her witty, quirky story with charming collage illustrations and her guinea pigs are the most endearing, funky little characters you are ever likely to meet.

Author

Charlotte Middleton grew up in a little village in the Cotswolds. As a child she owned various guinea pigs and they kept sections of her parent's garden lawn very well trimmed with their nibbling. Those childhood guinea pigs are the inspiration for Christopher Nibble! At school, Charlotte loved drawing and would regularly illustrate her spelling and times tables test papers. She went on to study Graphic Art and Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Her firstbook, Tabitha's Terrifically Tough Tooth, was published in 1998and since then she has written and illustrated more than a dozen books. Her stories have been sold all over the world and Charlotte wouldlove to be as well-travelled as her books one day. Charlotte's home is now in South Gloucestershire and she shares it with her boyfriend, Endaf, and cat, Pablo.
