Series: Picture books
By Katie Daynes
When the farmer can't pull an enormous turnip out of the ground, he enlists his entire family to help him. Only when everybody works together do they manage to pull the turnip out of the ground. A classic folk tale, specially retold for young children and illustrated with fresh, bright humorous pictures. Young children will love having this tale read to them, but the text also simple enough for confident readers to enjoy alone.
Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.
