This book is perfect for anyone who’s ever felt that size doesn’t matter. Sam’s dad thinks Sam is too small to fly a kite. When the kite runs away everyone has a try at catching it, e.g. the postman and his sack of mail, a bank robber escaped from jail... and animals at the zoo! Guess whose big enough to save the day? Written with great rhyming text and rhythm, we fell head over heels for this book.

Synopsis

Someone Bigger by Jonathan Emmett

Bringing two picture talents together, this title serves as a cautionary tale to bossy adults everywhere. It shows how Sam and Dad make a kite and try to fly it. They go out on a windy day to see if they can fly it, but the wind blows hard and Dad thinks Sam's too small to fly the kite. It needs someone bigger - or does it?
