Winner of the 2015 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award

Two fuzzy creatures can’t agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all!

The simple text of Anna Kang and bold illustrations of New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant tell an original and very funny story about size—it all depends on who’s standing next to you.

Our Thoughts:

My daughter found this book on one of our trips to the library. She liked the cover and decided to bring it home. We ended up reading it several times a day while we had it. My daughter loved it! She thought it was funny and it also gave us the chance to talk about how everyone comes in different shapes and sizes. The illustrations are simple and entertaining, just like the story.

This is a cute book about differences, opposites, and how everything is relative.
