Floss the Playground Boss

    By

    A beautiful picture book teaching children about friendship and sharing. Floss says STOP, Floss says GO! Floss says YES, Floss says NO! Floss is the playground boss! That is until a new boy named Peter moves into the house on the opposite side of the playground from Floss. When Peter decides he doesn't want to play along with Floss' rules, she learns that having friends can be much more fun than being the playground boss! Corrinne Averiss' high-energy storytelling is perfectly paired with Sam Usher's classic Quentin Blake-esque artwork in this fun-packed, playground story, perfect for children aged 3 years and up. With a charmingly tenacious and relatable female character, this is the perfect book for anyone who loved Rebecca Patterson's My Big Shouting Day! Corrinne Averiss is a debut author and her first picture book, A Dot in the Snow, is due to be published by OUP in October 2016. Corrinne has spent much of her life working in children's TV as a producer and director at companies including Ragdoll, CITV and CBeebies. She lives in Manchester with her husband and a charming cat, Alba. Sam Usher has illustrated several books for children including Pippa Goodhart's What Will Danny Do Today? His first book, Can You See Sassoon?, was longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award and shortlisted for the Red House Children's Book Award and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. He is published by Templar, Little Tiger, Hodder, Jonathan Cape and OUP.
