Mrs Wobble the Waitress Paperback

Part of the Happy Families series


This is a brand new, bigger, edition of an Ahlberg Happy Families classic.

Mrs Wobble loves her job as a waitress but, oh dear, there's one big problem - she wobbles! And when she wibbles and wobbles and drops jelly everywhere, it's time for a new job!

Luckily, Mr Wobble, and all the Wobble children have a cunning plan...Janet and Allan Ahlberg's Happy Families series is full of wonderful and funny books, perfect for children learning to read.

This new, bigger, edition means that even younger children can enjoy the stories.

Look out for Mr Biff the Boxer, too! Allan Ahlberg, a former teacher, postman, plumber's mate and grave digger, is in the super-league of children's writers.

He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award winning picture books as Each Peach Pear Plum and The Jolly Postman - both winners of the Kate Greenaway Medal.

He has also written prize-winning poetry and fiction and lives in Bath.
