The Baddies

By Julia Donaldson

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

If you are a fan … or not … of ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Room on a Broom’, you will likely like ‘The Baddies’, newly published in July of 2023, and written by the same author and illustrated by the same illustrator. The tale is written in rhyme and the bright pictures bring life and humor to the story.

Mouse has some news for his forest friends: a troll, a ghost, and a witch. Together, they are known as the Baddies. The news is that a young girl with a blue hanky with white dots has moved into the neighborhood. The Baddies challenge each other to see which one of them will be the first to steal her blue and white hanky.

Read this delightful tale to see who the victory goes to. You just may be surprised.
