Small is a very young fox, and he is up to no good: Playing toss and fling and squash, yell and scream and bang and crash. Break and snap and bash and batter...'Good grief,' said Large. 'What is the matter?' Large is a loving mum who promises to love Small, even when he's 'grim and grumpy' - even if he becomes a bear or a bug or a crocodile. Small asks mum some important questions: Does love wear out? Does love go on after we die? Large has all the most reassuring answers. The rhyming text and the warm, glowing illustrations (with sophisticated details that parents will enjoy too) make a truly joyous read. Outstanding.
