From a master of board books for the very young comes a simple and simply delightful take on the concept of size.

Mouse is small, to be sure. And Tortoise is big (relatively speaking). But Pelican is bigger than Tortoise, and Zebra is bigger still. In an engaging, interactive novelty board book, Mary Murphy turns her bold, high-contrast illustrations — perfect for visual stimulation — to a first look at size relationships. Babies will be happy to lift the graduated shaped pages to see a series of animals that get increasingly bigger — and learn which creature causes the biggest reaction of all!
Mary Murphy is the author-illustrator of many board books and picture books, including A Kiss Like This, Say Hello Like This!, Good Night Like This, I Kissed the Baby!, and Utterly Lovely One. She lives in Galway, Ireland.

Editorial Reviews

This volume will be a quick read at bedtime, but it has the potential to become a real favorite of aspiring young readers and page-turners, and it should stand up well to significant abuse from typical toddlers. A winning reminder that sometimes the little guy comes out on top.—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)Murphy outlines the animals in thick, smudgy ink, and paints the creatures and the backgrounds in bright, eye-catching colors. A nifty introduction to animals and their sizes—and it’ll prompt giggles, too.—Publishers Weekly
