A bold and very funny story all about a seagull who simply cannot share!
Poor Mouse is just about to tuck into his lunch, when in swoops Seagull and gobbles it up. Mouse's crisps aren't safe either ... what a rude and greedy bird he is! But Mouse has a fiendish trick up his sleeve, which just might cure Seagull of his thieving ways.
All Mine! is a brilliantly funny cautionary tale about the importance of sharing; the strong visual narrative and energetic dialogue will make it a sure-fire hit at story time. With striking, brightly coloured artwork and slapstick humour, this yummy comic caper is a read-along delight for young children, and the lovely hardback board book format is perfect for little hands.
Award-winning Zehra Hicks' books are a feast for the eyes full of movement and hilarity, and her use of collage and mixed media will inspire children to craft their own creations using found objects and exciting materials.
Zehra Hicks is the author-illustrator of the award-winning The Boy Who Hated Toothbrushes and its companion title The Girl Who Loved Wellies.

Cambridgeshire Children's Picture Book Award and named Lovereading4Kids Debut of the Year 2011. All Mine! was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Zehra uses a variety of media to create her bold, stylish artwork: the energetic characters in All Mine! are painted using a stick, and in Flying Lemurs by bamboo. Zehra spent a year studying theatre design in Utrecht, Holland, which gave her a great understanding of the stage, but she has not as yet performed any acrobatic shows in public like her lemurs. Zehra lives with her family in Epsom, Surrey.
