This badger loves to clean, and he takes it to quite the extreme! He cleans the forest so much that he realizes the forest isn’t there anymore. Once he realizes his mistake, he does what he can to fix it (with the help of his friends). This book is a great conversation starter about how we all make mistakes, and realizing that is the first step in fixing them. :) It’s a pretty fun book, the only thing I didn’t love was the rhyme sequence on the very last page. Beyond that, the text was great and the illustrations were fun!

Who Wrote Tidy

author
Emily Gravett

Emily Gravett was born in Brighton, England, the second daughter of a printmaker and an art teacher. She left school at 16 and travelled the UK for eight years, living in a big green bus with her partner and their daughter. After returning to Brighton to take up an art degree, Emily sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves in 2005, which won her the Macmillan Prize for Illustration, followed by a book deal and the first of her Kate Greenaway Medals. Wolves was followed by such brilliant modern classics as Orange Pear Apple Bear, Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, Again! and the exquisite Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last – and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily now lives in Brighton with her family. When not working in her studio, she might be found walking the dog, watering the tomatoes or driving the family’s restored 1960s bus.
