Tiny Little Fly

My oh my! Big elephant tramping, big hippo rolling, big tiger snatching. TRAMP! ROLL! SWAT! But can they catch that pesky fly? In this stunning picture book for the very young, the bigger jungle animals try to use their superior muscle to squish a teeny-weeny fly. But somehow, the cheeky little chap always gets away… Michael Rosen chalks one up for the little guy in a rollicking read-aloud rhyme with an irresistible refrain. The action-packed story is matched by Kevin Waldron’s strikingly dramatic illustrations, using bold perspectives rendered in pencil and gouache.

“A perfect book for reading again and again.” The Bookseller
