Eleanor's Eyebrows by Timothy Knapman and David Tazzyman

Eleanor's Eyebrows
What would you do if your eyebrows disappeared? Would you notice? Would you care? When Eleanor's eyebrows disappear, she doesn't care one bit. After all what's the point of eyebrows - they're just two silly, scruffy, hairy little bits of fluff! This hilarious and surreal book follows the eyebrows' adventures as extra legs for an ant pretending to be a spider, a twirly moustache for a magician and a furry exclamation mark.

Children ask numerous questions and many of these adults are unable to answer. Eleanor asks one such question - 'What is the point of eyebrows? they're just two silly, scruffy, hairy, little bits of fluff!'

This book is a great read for children (and adults) alike. Where would two scruffy, hairy little bits of fluff be useful and loved: a butterfly house; a magician's moustache or tyres on a motorbike to name but a few suggestions?

The story is a fun and humorous read and will be loved by children of all ages. The illustrations add further humour to the text and will be a great source for discussion around story time.

Thank you to the publishers, Simon and Schuster, for sending me the book to review.
