Product description


...visit a seaside B&B in Sophie Dahl's Madame Badobedah (Walker), illustrated with airy, light-hearted charm by Lauren O'Hara. Mettlesome Mabel encounters a suspicious guest: a flamboyant old lady with piles of fascinating luggage, toffee-apple-red hair and rude, secretive manners. Is she right to guess that Madam Badobedah is a super-villain? This longer-form picture book, tapping astutely into the imaginative life of an adventurous child, is lovely both to read and to listen to. -- Imogen Russell Williams * The Guardian * ...it's swashbuckling and mysterious whilst still being very easy to follow. I can't recommend it enough as a gift for a godchild or a niece or nephew, it's a beautiful, beautiful kids' book and I hope to read lots more of Madame Badobedah * Dolly Alderton, The High Low podcast * It is a splendidly entertaining story, just right for younger readers who are launching out into a larger text, and Lauren O'Hara has responded to it with huge dash and imagination. * Shirley Hughes * Dahl's granddaughter makes her children's debut with this gentle tale... "I really hate bitter books, and bitter people," Sophie Dahl has said. There is no bitterness here, and nothing too revolting - but there is plenty of charm. * The Daily Telegraph * ...this quirky, imaginative story is a delight... Vividly illustrated, this is a witty and gently moving debut. * The Daily Mail *

About the Author

Sophie Dahl was born in London in 1977. She was immortalised as the orphan Sophie in the beloved children's classic, The BFG, by Roald Dahl, her grandfather. She began modelling in 1996, after being discovered by fashion maverick Isabella Blow outside a bookshop. Her first novel, Playing With The Grown-Ups was published in October 2007 following her best-selling novella, The Man With The Dancing Eyes. Dahl is a contributing editor for Men's Vogue, and her work has been published in American Vogue, The Guardian, The Telegraph Magazine and The Spectator. Dahl has recently moved back to England after an eight year sojourn in New York.
