Such simple concepts in this friendly picture book, but such important ones! A few words on each page along with cheerful and witty pictures give us contrasting ways of behaving: ‘Squabble less. Share more! Grumble less. Giggle more!’. The initial letters in every phrase make for jolly alliteration, and each double page spread shows clearly how much more pleasant it is to behave in a positive and happy way. Uff’s lightness of touch in the illustrations is a perfect compliment to Doyle’s spare and humorous text. A real delight!
