‘You are small,’ insists a fuzzy creature to his, admittedly smaller, companion. But the little creature has a cunning defence: ‘I am not small. You are big.’ The argument evolves; other get involved, each claiming that they are the rule and the other is the exception until more creatures show up and complicate the matter even further. The creatures eventually agree that everyone is both big and small, but that they’re all hungry. This wonderfully simple story demonstrates how all things are relative, whilst enforcing an inclusive message about being comfortable with who you are. It’s cleverly done and the clear illustrations are a perfect match to the smart and succinct text. Certainly a useful picture book for classrooms, but this neat little treat could become a real favourite at home too.
