Written and illustrated by Emily Gravett
Emily Gravett's Tidy is a charming story in rhyme about Pete, a “slightly” over-zealous badger, who likes everything to be clean and tidy regardless of how it will affect him and all his friends in the woods.
He is constantly grooming other animals and he keeps on cleaning and tidying up his surroundings, so much so that he almost destroys the forest! Pete eventually realizes he's gone too far when he sees that he has no home to return to, and tries to fix it. During this process, he learns that being tidy is a good thing, but going overboard with it, is not!
I loved this book! The illustrations are gorgeous, funny and sweet and the message was not preachy at all. A great book about keeping a balance between being tidy and enjoying life!
