The New Small Person

by Lauren Child

Ref: 14397

An author who needs no introduction. Here, Child introduces the ever-endearing Elmore Green, a once happy child whose bliss is disturbed by the arrival of a new small person. "The new person was small and didn't do much at all but still people picked it up and smiled at it and gave it things to chew..." As ever, Child perfectly captures an unmediated child's voice and point of view as Elmore very slowly starts to grasp some of the benefits of a new sibling...such as bedtime huggles and someone who understands the importance of lining up toys neatly. Age 4-7, Paperback 30pp
