About the Book

The hilarious debut picture book from the award-winning and bestselling author of GIRT. This is a book with a grossness that kids will love, and with a message that parents will adore.

The wickedly funny, deliciously clever picture book debut from David Hunt (GIRT) with illustrations by award-winning artist Lucia Masciullo (THE BOY AND THE TOY).

Oliver has a bad habit. A very bad habit.

He just can't keep his fingers out of his nose, which is a big problem for the tiny pixies who mine his 'nose gold' to keep their cities running.

The Nose Pixies return to their kingdom with empty handkerchiefs night after night. And unless their luck changes, they'll be out of a job ... or worse!

Ages 4-8

'Kids will love all the disgusting things in this truly imaginative book' Four-star review, Books+Publishing
