Perfect for children from about 4 plus. Children will love this book: the difference from a normal hide and seek book is the soft toy. Having Miranda the sheep as their friend in real life, makes the book seem more real. They can not only play with the toy, but also take it on their own hide and seek adventures. Find Miranda is the first of a series of ‘Find’ books, other toys will feature in different countries in the future!
The toys are all handmade in New Zealand by Gaby. Her grandma used to make her toys when she was a kid. Gaby always thought she did miracles with that sewing machine, so a few years ago she thought: ‘maybe the ability to sew is genetic!’ and she decided to give it a go too. In the process Gaby discovered knowing how to sew is not genetic, but after some practise she can do it as well.
Amelia, the giraffe: Since leaving Africa, Amelia has been very cold, however she has been unable to find a scarf that will cover her long neck. Amelia loves dandelions, watermelon iced tea and burying herself in the sand.
Hugo, the cat: Hugo has a bit of trouble trusting others, however once he gets to know you he will become your most loyal friend. His favourite thing in the world is dipping his whiskers in tuna milkshake.
