Big is all about growing: growing up and growing things.
A refreshingly simple book that celebrates growing up Up UP!
Tim Hopgood's stylish illustrations bring this endearing little boy to life as he contrasts himself with an ant, a bear and an elephant...
The boy grows throughout the story, and by the end he's bigger than his best friend.
This book confronts a preoccupation of every child, and every child will recognise and empathise with this little boy's wish to be BIG!
The story is based on the author's childhood memories of how we know we’ve grown; like the first time you can see yourself in the bathroom mirror without having to stand on a stool. Or being able to reach the light-switch in your bedroom without standing on a pile of books. And how your pyjama trousers are now halfway up your legs, yet when they were new they used to trail along the floor.
