A similar size to David McKee's King Rollo series but in comparison these small books are non-starters.
They deal with everyday things and events in the lives of small children but have no story at all, and the pictures do nothing to attract. Books for the under fives should engender in their audience the excitement of words and visual images; these do neither.
