When Steve meets Steve, neither can believe it. Surely one of them must be the first Steve, the best Steve, the Stevest Steve . . . The claims of each puffin become sillier and sillier as the argument descends into name-calling - until both Steves realize there's really no need to fall out over a name. The feuding puffins perfectly reflect the sort of silly arguments children have - and The Steves shows just how pointless they are. The bold, brilliantly coloured, graphic illustrations will have you laughing out loud in this glorious book from Morag Hood, creator of the hilarious Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea and I Am Bat .

When Steve the puffin meets Steve the puffin, they are both disconcerted. Surely there can’t be two puffins called Steve that would be a nonsense. And if there has to be two of them then one must be better than the other! Who is the first Steve? The fastest Steve? The tallest Steve? With each spread they get sillier and sillier and more annoyed until they become so mean to each other that they start to regret their behaviour. Brilliantly mimicking the funny arguments children have with each other, it shows how we should celebrate our differences rather than try to be the same as each other and strive to be the best. Eye-catching, vibrant spreads make this story stand out from the crowd. While the use of a limited bold palette creates a truly attractive book that demands to be read. An absolute star of a read, I just loved it

My 6 year old son loves this hilarious but simple book. Two puffins called Steve meet each other, but who can be Steve? Should there be a number 1 Steve and a number 2 Steve? Or maybe they could be classified by Weird Feet Steve and Smells of Poo Steve (note that they do end up apologising to each other about being mean). The illustrations are bright and simple and it's a great book for young readers to read themselves. We both got the giggles reading it.

This book is about two puffins who have the same name. They don’t like this so challenge each other, who is the tallest and compare birthdays. They both don’t want to share the same name. The bright pages are really appealing to young children.

A simple but funny story! Working in childcare I can relate to this story and the minor squabbles I hear throughout the day. 
Two puffins, Steve and Steve are not happy about Sharing the same name and they set out to prove who is the most Steve! 
It’s easy to read and has bright bold illustrations. A great book for younger children.

An interesting story and we really enjoyed the start with both Steves competing and explaining who was the real Steve. However  I don't like the part where they talk about smelling of poo. This ruined the story for me as I felt it couldn't really be shared with younger children as they may copy this phrase so I'd have to leave it out.

Lovely pictures and a great idea for a story. I like the fact they sorry too.
