SHORTLISTED - COVENTRY INSPIRATIONAL BOOK AWARD

NOMINATED - KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL

"Beautifully composed drawings with retro charm... Hopgood catches precisely the situations in which children know they’ve grown”  KING KALLI MAGAZINE, GERMANY

“Beautifully portrayed...expressive, slightly offbeat illustrations...with a plethora of mathematical ideas and comparative language, this is a must for all early years”  JILL BENNETT, RED READING HUB

Big is all about growing: growing up and growing things. It’s based on my 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. I remember wondering when I’d be big and yet compared with an ant even as a 4 year old I was already a giant!

If you’re thinking of buying this book as a present buy some sunflower seeds to go with it - kids love seeing things grow especially from a seed they’ve planted themselves.
