What’s Inside?

Isabel Minhós Martins & Madalena Matoso

There are thousands of objects all around us:
in drawers, in cupboards, in backpacks and pockets, under beds and sofas…

Often, things don’t keep still, they get in a muddle (or is it us?), they move around and make us look everywhere until we find them. Because there are so many things and they are always on the go, they can surprise us!

We can open a drawer and… Ah!
We can put a hand in our pocket and… Oh!
We can peek into grandmother’s bag and… Wow?!!
And does anyone dare to guess what’s inside mum’s handbag?

In this book there are lots of pictures to look at and dozens of amusing challenges for all ages: for those who are still learning to talk and for all reader-detectives who like to find the clues and join A to B.

Are you ready to play?

Press voices

It is absolute genius. You can spend hours reading What’s Inside? and it can be a new experience every time you come back to it.” Children’s books Ireland

This is a fantastically clever idea for a book that will entertain children across a pretty wide age spectrum. Very young kids can simply practise identifying the various items. Slightly older kids can answer the questions, while those from middle primary onwards can test their memories in the harder challenges.Kids’ Book Review

A beautiful, brightly coloured book for chatty and lively children who like asking questions, pondering and observing.” Milk magazine
