Hello! Our story today is about a smartly dressed bull called Bill. Have you ever heard the saying when someone charges around knocking things over and breaking them that they are like a bull in a china shop? If so, this will give you a good clue as to what is about to happen in the tale of "Bill in a China Shop". The book is written by Katie McAllister Weaver and the illustrations are by Tim Raglin and there are three feely pictures of the characters in our story for you to enjoy.
The front cover of the book shows Bill, with an expression of delight and longing in his eyes, he has paused outside a china shop to look at the window display of prettily patterned cups, saucers.
