About the Book

It's raining, it's pouring.
And Daddy is snoring.
Mummy is working.
Oh, EVERYTHING'S BORING.

What can Ruby Roo do on a rainy day? Use her imagination! This jaunty, thrilling rhyming text sees these two intrepid explorers jet off to the jungle in their cardboard seaplane, and swing through the exotic pot plant canopy . . . encountering some strangely familiar characters on their way!

Packed with humour, colour and adventure – and with tons of 'clues' for children to spot – this is the latest picture book sensation from Pip Jones and superstar illustrator, Laura Hughes.

  • Pip Jones

    Pip Jones lives in East London with her partner, her two daughters and a real invisible cat (it doesn't catch mice, but it doesn't need a litter tray either, so there are pros and cons). She writes a lot. She even owns a writing cloak! And she spends days on end working out how to get good rhymes, such as 'snuffle' and 'kerfuffle', into stories. Pip won the inaugural Greenhouse Funny Prize in 2012 with Squishy McFluff, The Invisible Cat, her first book.

“The illustrations are stunning.”
