A new picture book from Tim Hopgood is always an exciting proposition. Stunning design and an abundance of creative colours mark this is out as another triumph for Tim. In Little Answer the beautiful artwork is matched with a text that is as worldly and wise as it fantastic and funny. Little Answer is lost, he knows ‘Sausages!’ is the answer to something but he isn’t sure what. Everyone has lots of questions but he doesn’t seem to fit any of them, until he meets Daisy, who is wondering about her dinner.
Great picture books inspire conversation and the very best become as familiar one of the family – it is easy to imagine ‘Sausages!’ becoming a household refrain, and the little answer to every possible question. Fantastically the real answers to all the animals’ questions are included – but shouting ‘Sausages!’ is so much more fun!
