Hervé Tullet pursued a successful career in advertising before switching to creating childrens books. Hervé Tullet is one of the best- known and best-loved childrens authors and illustrators working today. He has enchanted devotees of his unique style in previous, award-winning books, including Night and Day, The Five Senses and Imagine.

The Scribble Book is an entirely new venture, one in which his young readers are invited to participate!

Encouraged by Hervé to pick up a crayon and scribble alongside him, they will lose all inhibitions and unlock their own creativity. They will feed scribbles to a hungry monster, scribble water to put out a fire, scribble flames coming out of a volcano, spaghetti for lunch and ski-tracks in the snow.

The Scribble Book does away with the traditional rules of the pre- school colouring book, encouraging children to cross boundaries and experiment for themselves. Gradually, as the book unfolds, the scribbles evolve into puzzles to be solved and finally into genuine drawings. Full of wit and humour, irreverent and enchanting, The Scribble Book is destined to become the latest success from the colourful mind of Herve Tullet.

Hervé Tullet pursued a successful career in advertising before switching to creating childrens books 15 years ago. His illustrations regularly appear in magazines including Cosmopolitan, Elle, Le Figaro and The New Yorker.

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    It's an open invitation to pick up a pencil, dive in, and start drawing and scribbling.

    This book is amazing, great for developing fine motor skills and learning how to hold a pencil and playing with line and colour. I am a teacher and love to use this in class with children, it's a shame there's no PDF version available for download so you can print pages for use in the classroom, it doesn't scan/photocopy to well as the pages are bigger than A4!!

    The Scribble Book is a wonderfully inventive book, encouraging creativity and imagination. Our junior reviewers were delighted with the freedom to experiment in a fabulously free uninhibited way. They and we loved it! Highly Recommended!
