Acclaimed children’s author Sally Grindley is well known for her interactive and colourful picture books. Knock Knock Who’s There? is 31 years old and is still used as a reader in schools in the UK and across Europe. Another book, Shhh!, is 25 years old this year. It was followed by Keep Out! in 2013, and now Sally has completed the next book in this series Help! which is illustrated by Peter Utton.

The new book is based loosely on the tale of The Three Little Pigs, but here we have a whole village of pigs all requiring the reader’s help to thwart that Big Bad Wolf.

“I love creating books for children. Help! physically involves the reader in the narrative and adventure and they become part of the story, ”

Sally said.
