Summary

Visit the farm in this audio edition of A Squash and a Squeeze, read by Imelda Staunton and Steven Pacey - the first ever book from the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. This audiobook also includes a read-along track, a song and an instrumental. 

'Wise old man, won't you help me, please? My house is a squash and squeeze.'

A little old lady lives all by herself in her house but she's not happy - it's just too small, even for one. Whatever can she do? The wise old man knows: bring in a flappy, scratchy, greedy, noisy crowd of farmyard animals. When she pushes them all out again, she'll be amazed at how big her house feels!

Perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime - or any time at all!
