Sophia loves to write stories, and the more imaginative, the better. She has a fund of ideas, all about animals and the exciting things they do. One day, when trying to find something to write about, all the animals parade in front of her, trying to convince her to choose them. There is a sparkly unicorn, cuddly bears, a lion who dresses in the brightest of clothes, colourful llamas and a very blue sloth, ten squeaky penguins, and, finally, a huge green dinosaur who frightens everyone else away. Meanwhile, there is something tiny trying to get Sophia’s attention, a something so small that it takes quite a lot of looking to find him. He’s been on her desk all along, waiting for an opportunity to give his side of the story: ‘I know that I’m small and I haven’t got style. I can’t do magic or give a dazzling smile. But I try to be brave and try to be bold. Doesn’t my story deserve to be told?’ And so Sophia begins to write. The rhyming couplets as well as the brilliantly psychedelic procession of animals will appeal, and the thought that the most interesting ideas come in small packages is an unusual one for children’s books – as is a flea!
