This is a charming lift-the-flap board book featuring characters from the successful CBeebies series, Tilly and Friends, originated by Polly Dunbar. What exciting things are Tilly and her friends doing? Look at the clues and guess, then lift the flaps to find out! Each of the seven spreads feature labelled picture clues on the left and a lift-the-flap picture on the right which reveals the answer. Young children will love looking at the clues and guessing what Tilly and her friends are doing! This is one of two fun-filled, novelty board books accompanying the Tilly and Friends television series. Tilly and Friends is currently airing on CBeebies, with 52 episodes in the series.
