By Jill Murphy

Snuggle up with this gorgeous gift box of the classic story board book Five Minutes' Peace and an adorable soft toy.

"If you are not familiar with these stories, you really have not lived ... you just couldn't get better" Guardian Mums everywhere will understand the plight of poor Mrs Large. All she wants is five minutes' peace and quiet away from her boisterous children! So, taking refuge in the bathroom, she fills herself a hot, foamy bubble bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast and the morning paper. But there’s never a dull moment with the Large family, and it soon becomes clear that mum's quiet time is to be very short-lived! Family life is beautifully observed in this warm and funny modern classic from Jill Murphy. Available for the first time with the cutest soft toy version of the Little One, this is the perfect present for your own little ones!
