For 25 years, Eileen Browne’s beautiful modern classic Handa’s Surprise has delighted the very youngest of readers who long to tell Handa what is happening right behind her. Brimming with mouth-watering fruit and wild animals, this picture book favourite, along with its sequel, Handa’s Hen, has sold over one million copies in more than twenty countries nationwide and has been named one of the best culturally diverse children’s books of all time. Now available in a luxurious 25th anniversary edition, this timeless story can now be enjoyed by a new generation.
To celebrate, Walker Books have created these lovely resources of an event poster and activity sheets.
You can join in the anniversary celebrations on social media using #HandaSurprise and tagging @readingagency and @WalkerBooksUK.
