Product description

Mini Grey’s darkly funny illustrations lend a new dimension to Hilaire Belloc’s cautionary tale of the careless Jim, who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion. Uproariously funny and not a little bloody, this is a book that every wayward child will devour! The rhyming story includes flaps, gatefolds and pop-ups – an all-round sensory triumph.

“Mini Grey… really has done justice to this wickedly funny poem. Full colour, lots of detail and the added bonus of flaps, gatefolds, pop-ups – and all delivered with panache.” The Bookseller

“I flicked through Jim with a sense of child-like awe. I loved lifting the flaps, discovering the poem, seeing the lion pop up and poring over the map of the zoo. It’s a beautifully constructed book, and it’s completely flawless, utterly perfect, glorious, wonderful, magnificent, a total joy.” Keith Dudhnath, Bookbag

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Small parts.
