Book Feather 2012 (Best Illustrated Children’s Book, Flanders)
Prize of the Children’s Jury 2013 (Flanders)
One big, hilarious pile-up – that’s Bang!, a fabulous picture-book story with hardly any words. Animals of all kinds go crashing into each other.
They all have their own reasons for not noticing they’re about to smash into the others. Only Chameleon pays attention and, with brakes screeching, is able to avoid a collision. Everyone’s so relieved. But only for a moment, because then Penguin comes along and he can’t get his icecream can to stop in time. But what a
happy crash it is! Ultimately, it makes the world a better place. Friendships blossom, someone proposes marriage and then a street party breaks out.
Press on Bang!:
‘THE maddest most irresistible picturebook.’ – meg rosoff
‘Watching vehicles bash into one another is a perennial rib-tickler for kids, and Timmers exploits this with a marvellously loony series of fender benders…’ – starred review, Publishers Weekly (US)
