Help! We Need a Title!

The brand new picture book by Hervé Tullet, author of bestselling Press Here.

This month we are EXTREMELY excited about the brand new picture book by French author-illustrator Hervé Tullet. This is a book FULL of surprises and we can guarantee that it's like no book you have ever read before...

To start with, there’s LOTS of characters. And when you open the book, they’re not quite ready for you yet … in fact. there’s not even a STORY because – guess what?! – this book isn’t FINISHED! But with the help of a certain author, the characters manage to find one for you...

Listen to Hervé reading from the book and find out more in this interactive video:

Find the book at your local bookshop.

This summer, independent bookshops nationwide are blowing up balloons and breaking out the bunting to take part in our Picture Book Party promotion. Over the months of August and September booksellers will be throwing Picture Book Party storytelling events up and down the country, giving away free height charts with Picture Book Party books! We’re also running a window display competition, giving the indie with the best window the chance to win a Fortnum & Mason Celebration Hamper. Here are a few of our favourites so far...
