Sometimes I feel as big as a bear . . . But there will always be someone bigger than me.
There are lots of ways that we can feel, so many emotions big and small. Sarah Maycock explores our feelings through a collection of animal similes and poetic prose, imagined with sublime illustrations that perfectly embody each emotion. Even a big bear can feel small sometimes and even a mouse can find the inner courage to stand tall.
A thought-provoking one-off picture book from an illustrator skyrocketing in popularity.
Christmas comes but once a year. Luckily . . . The Christmas holiday is, traditionally, a time when families gather together. In Ralph's case this means ten or more relatives coming to stay, including assorted aunts and uncles, nutty Great-Aunt Ida (the Home tells them to be careful not to let her out) and his ghastly cousins: Titania in her silly, sick-making frilly fairy dresses and the twins Sylvester and Sylvia (it took until Easter last year before the family dog got over them).
Jammed into one small house for three days of merriment and family fun, with the tv on the blink and Mum on the verge of a breakdown, it soon becomes obvious that, in this house, more definitely does not mean merrier . . .
