What’s Next?

A sweet, suspenseful story of a baby badger and his dad with rich, atmospheric illustrations from Jane McGuinness.
Curious Baby Badger loves exploring. He is eager to see, and know, more of the world beyond his den. So, one night, his daddy takes him on a moonlit adventure through the still, black-and-white forest up above their underground home. And that sets Baby Badger’s imagination soaring. What’s daytime like? he wonders. What’s next?

A tender father and son story of adventure, discovery and the comforting pull of home, paired with rich, evocative illustrations from Jane McGuinness.

Our Review Panel says...

A most beautiful story of an inquisitive baby badger’s exploration of the world outside his den. The moment the reader meets Baby Badger, he draws us into his world – a world where Daddy Badger encourages, teaches and protects him as he wonders about the world around him. This is an excellent father-and-child story with illustrations that reflect the story path and show the reader the beauty of Baby Badger’s natural world as well as the father’s natural instincts to protect, teach and encourage his young.
