A brilliantly witty introduction to comparisons and opposites, illustrated by the winner of the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award.
These children and animals are all very different to each other. Some are big, some are small. Some are gentle, some are rough. Everyone is playful, but who's the best at hiding? One thing's certain: they all love a good bedtime story!
Shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Picture Book Award, this is the perfect book for little ones who are just beginning to make sense of their place in the world. Karl Newson has created a simple, funny and heart-warming text, which is perfectly matched by Kate Hindley's charming, brilliantly witty artwork, filled with detail.
