For little ones, the lesson of learning to share can be a difficult one. Whilst we can all wish to hold onto some things for ourselves, it can be so much more fun and exciting when we share with others. Something that Ruffles and the teeny tiny kittens learn in this week’s featured children’s book.
Ruffles and the Teeny tiny kittens
Author and illustrator David Melling
Published by Nosy Crow
Age group: 3-5 years
Ruff! Ruff! Hello, Ruffles! Ruffles is a typical toddler who experiences all the highs and lows of preschool life as he learns about the world around him. There are lots of things he likes . . . and lots of things he doesn’t!
Ruffles does not love the teeny, tiny kittens
and he does not want to share.
Not his snacks…
Not his cushion…
Not his chew…
Not his ball…
Not his stick…
and NOT Big Blue Blankie!
But maybe the teeny, tiny kittens can show Ruffles that sharing is actually the best fun of all.
The hilarious follow up to Ruffles and the Red, Red Coat, where Ruffles does NOT like wearing his coat on a rainy day!

About the Author – David Melling
David grew up in London with various siblings and a selection of animals (the dog is probably worth a mention). His father was a sculptor and David would often gawp in wonderment at how faces would slowly emerge from blocks of wood, sheets of metal or bits of plastic. It took him a while to decide what he wanted to do with his pencils (he never stopped drawing), and for a period of time, back in the 1980s, he worked as a cel-renderer and background artist in several animation studios.
By the mid-1990’s he began illustrating children’s books. In 2001 he wrote and illustrated the first of his own picture books; The Kiss That Missed which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway award. He is probably best known for his Hugless Douglas series. To date, he has created around 150 books in over 30 languages.
David lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and two children. Currently, there are no pets to speak of, now he’s over the hamster/stick insect phase.
