Listen to Me!
|Series:||Tilly and Friends|
From inspired picture-book creator Polly Dunbar, this televised series follows the escapades of Tilly and her friends. Tilly and her friends are singing the Wiggle Wiggle Woo song - but bossy Pru wants all the attention. In her bid to steal the limelight by singing as loudly as possible she manages to lose her voice. Where can it have gone? Tilly and her friends search high and low for Pru's lost voice, but it's not under the cushions, or even in the toy box. Just when it looks as if Pru's voice may be lost for ever, Hector has a brilliant idea. But could Pru's voice really be in a jar of honey?! Tilly and Friends is currently airing on CBeebies, with 52 episodes in the series. Utterly charming artwork, delicious palette, gentle humour and winsome characters have deservedly made this a series of winners.
