UK Writer and Illustrator Lauren Child, illustrated by the writer The New Small Person Puffin Books 2014   $17.99pb 32pp ISBN 978 0 7232 9361 3 Themes: New babies/ Sharing

Elmore Green's parents thought he was simply the funniest, cleverest, most adorable person they had ever seen and Elmore Green felt this was true. Then something happened to change it all – a new, small person arrived on the scene and Elmore was expected to share everything with him including his parent’s interest and adoration. In this new title by Lauren Child she shows once more that she understands so well just what makes small children tick and what they want to read about that ‘ticking’.

  1. Are you paying more than $5 for each pack of cigarettes? I buy all my cigs from Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50% from cigs.
