Description

Johnny's beard is magnificent and splendiferous, but is it amazing enough to help the forest animals get through the long cold winter? Johnny is obsessed with looking after his beautiful beard. When winter comes, he needs to decide how best to help his friends, even if it means giving up the one thing he loves the most. This engaging book introduces children to the musicality of words, the power of descriptive language and captures their imagination with illustrations that dance along the page. From the author/illustrator duo who were listed on the 2018 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Notable list for The World’s Worst Pirate, this new picture book is sure to delight their growing legion of fans, both young and old.
