The Lovereading4Kids comment

August 2017 Book of the Month The gorgeous second book from the Waterstones Childrens Book Prize shortlisted author Naomi Howarth. A funny, heartwarming retelling of this well-known folk tale teaches that wit and wisdom are more important than size and physical strength, and friendship is what matters most.

Synopsis

Tug of War by Naomi Howarth

Tortoise is on the hunt for a friend, but only encounters huge Elephant and Hippo, who are mean about his small size and wrinkly skin. But though Tortoise isn't big, he is certainly brainy! He sets out to show Elephant and Hippo that biggest doesn't mean best by challenging them to a tug of war. They sneeringly accept... but little do they know that they have really agreed to fight each other!

Reviews
