Tiger claims that stripes are best. Leopard insists that spots are tops. Their squabble turns into a quarrel; the quarrel becomes a battle; and, by lunchtime, the jungle is a complete mess. Monkey calls a meeting of the Jungle Council and all the animals put their heads together to come up with a plan. Their cunningly stylish way of resolving matters will bring out the best in everyone ...well, almost everyone. A gorgeously colourful, fabulously fashion-conscious and shrewdly funny new picture book from the award-winning author of The Boring Book. Stripes! No, Spots! will delight and entertain children ages 3 - 10 as well as grown-ups with great taste. 'glorious illustrations and typography' - Weekend Herald 2016 STORYLINES NOTABLE PICTURE BOOK
