Description Description Oh, Armadillo! is a hilarious tale exploring the endlessly humorous mishaps of an Armadillo who wants to host the most amazing party. 

Armadillo sets out to please the jungle animals with classic party treats and games, but everything turns out a little peculiar... like a sponge cake made of sponges and an actual musical chair!
  • Children will roar with laughter at the silly scenarios and very funny mishaps that Armadillo creates whilst planning his party. He misinterprets the most popular party games, like Pass the Parcel, in the funniest ways.
  • Oh, Armadillo! combines laugh-out-loud humour with teaching a gentle lesson that there's nothing wrong with thinking differently. The jungle animals declare that Armadillo's party is wrong because everything is a little unusual, but what the animals learn is that being creative and inventive can lead to fun and laughter!
  • This bold, bright, hilarious picture book is brought to life by talented illustrator Rob Starling
Oh, Armadillo! will provide hours of laughs for little readers, whilst reminding us that thinking differently is good and can lead to the most fun of all!

Ellie Irving
Ellie Irving was born in Bristol, but raised in a hamlet on the outskirts of Southend-on-Sea, by a family of avid readers. So avid, in fact, her mum enrolled her in the local library before she’d even emerged from the womb, which was awkward for all concerned. When she was seven, Ellie’s passion for writing stories flourished when her parents bought her a Petite Super International typewriter for Christmas, and there was no stopping her. After studying a 4 year broadcasting degree at the University of Leeds, Ellie realised there were too few home makeover shows in the world, and worked on a number of DIY and Garden programmes for UK Style. Ellie returned to studying and graduated from an MA in Screenwriting course at the London College of Communication in 2008.
