Lothian Children's Books, 2014, ISBN 9780734415509.
A day without school lends itself to many adventures at home with the family. From the very start to the very end the children engage with their parents turning many everyday home based activities into adventures. Beginning with morning snuggles in bed, the making of breakfast, building of forts, games of hide and seek, the story develops until story time and bed as the whole family enjoys a day full of home made fun and adventure.
The book celebrates the creative ability of children to turn simple things into exciting adventures while Cheryl Orsini's illustrations add an extra dimension to the story and contribute beautifully to the book, which will appeal to very young children.
