Squiggle’s back - this time, in a fun-filled adventure that helps turn muddled sentences into ones that make sense!

Squiggle’s stuck! She’s fallen into a dictionary and can’t escape. The only way out is to create a grammatically correct sentence and use it to jump off the page. She’s even got to rescue a very mixed-up character called Doodle Dude while helping him learn about verbs, nouns, prepositions and more such. Can you help them build a getaway sentence?

This new adventure follows on from Natasha Sharma’s brilliant and highly acclaimed Squiggle Takes a Walk, the best way to figure out the world of punctuation.

Meet Squiggle—curious, confused and crazy!

Squiggle is confused. She doesn’t know quite what she is! So she sets off through the pages of a notebook in search of answers. Is she a comma or colon? A question mark? Surely not an exclamation! Splash, run, bump, trip and swing with her until she finds her own kind.

Natasha Sharma’s delightful book introduces young readers to the correct way to use punctuation in this deliciously comic tale. The book also includes a section with pointers on punctuation, interesting facts from history, and mayhem brought about by incorrect punctuation.

Jump into this adventure with Squiggle and you’ll never lose that comma again!

Maharaja Icky is quite the most disgusting King you’ll ever have the misfortune to meet. The ruler of the kingdom of Icktapur regales all with his utterly vile table manners. 

While he sits licking curry from hand to elbow and juggling rosogullas, his beloved nail-nibbling queen Maharani Yucky, joins him. Banned from using spoons or nail cutters, the people of Ickhtarpur are at their wits’ end. But their hopes rise when the announcement comes that the Maharani is expecting a little baby...

With gleefully gross illustrations by highly acclaimed children’s illustrator Anitha Balachandran, Icky, Yucky, Mucky! will have children squirming in their chairs and yelling with delight. And perhaps, learning a lesson or two in table manners!
