I’m The Biggest by Stephanie Blake

March 25, 2018

biggestI’m The Biggest by Stephanie Blake. Pub. Gecko press, June 2018

Poo Bum  set the bench mark for this series of picture books about Simon and later his little brother Casper. It is a hard act to follow but Stephanie Blake has managed to keep the momentum going  with slick prose, bold colourful illustrations and a storyline that always surprises.

In this latest edition sibling rivalry becomes a feature of Simon and Casper’s relationship when their mother discovers that Casper has grown 3 centimeters and Simon only one.

Simon says No Way and becomes jealous. An incident in the park makes Simon realise he is still the BIG brother even though the size difference is getting smaller.

Casper of course sees things differently.

Great read-a-loud for juniors and will help littlies to view their own role in the family. Good laugh for adults too.

NB Not released until June 2018.
