Hello and welcome to Littleland!

Fresh from her success with the Noodle series, Marion Billet returns with a picture book for the very young, featuring the ten Littleland friends!

Designed to stimulate speech and build vocabulary, this busy book is full of familiar scenes and fascinating detail.

With a ‘Can you see?’ feature on every spread and a simple, chatty narrative, Littleland mimics the daily conversations between mother and child and makes the perfect next step up from board books.


Marion Billet is the illustrator of the Noodle books. She was born in 1982 in Lyon, France. After school she studied children’s book illustration at the Emile Cohl School.

Marion has had around 80 children’s books published in 11 different countries. Her adorable characters have appeared in magazines, on stationery and toys, as well as on children’s furniture and clothes. For fun, Marion loves to dance and takes dance classes two or three times a week. She currently lives in Paris.
