With her bright, bold and colourful artwork, Kali Stileman has created a book about food to rival Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This is a warm, funny story that introduces animals and food types with a fun surprise, revealed when the fantastic flaps are lifted.
Kali's first book, Peely Wally, was selected to be part of the Booktrust's Books for Babies scheme. 150,000 copies will be distributed to mothers and babies throughout the UK in 2012.
Praise for Peely Wally:A brilliant debut that kids will love. The superb illustrations are on a par with Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar - The Sun

Comparisons with Eric Carle are irresistible, but despite the apparent influence, she has a style that is very much her own. The lift-the-flap finale is a creepy crawly feast that will have your audience squealing with joyful disgust (thus proving the point conclusively) - Teach Nursery
Yet another arresting treat for young readers from the exceedingly talented Kali Stileman . . . Each page is a riot of colour and the child-friendly language and a pop-up finale will really engage kids - The Sun
It's a fun story to read with simple but appealing, colourful pictures that young readers will like to look at. The unexpected flaps at the end are an extra source of delight - Madhouse Family Reviews
