A gust of wind, an elephant, a dive bomb, a spell: this funky "before" and "after" book will have you chuckling! What happens to a lion after the storm? His mane is swept into a dishevelled mess. What becomes of a pear after an elephant passes by? Pear jam! A frog after a spell? A prince. And the room after a battle? A big mess! Comical illustrations, witty wordplay, and new rhymes and jokes to find with each re-reading. Country of Origin: France


Product Information

This has to be my favourite 'picture dictionary'. Each double page spread has a before and an after and they are SO funny. I think I might like the 'after a cannonball' one best - you know, when you jump into the water with an almighty splash. Or perhaps it's the 'after the night', with the goldfish in a bowl and the cat - you can imagine what happens there.

This is a simply delightful book, translated from the French (who clearly have the same sense of humour that I do) and published by NZ's own Gecko Press. - Kathleen, @ Dorothy Butler Children's Bookshop, 2018.
