The Lovereading4Kids comment

A touching story of how friendship can cross barriers. Poor Mr Big is so large that no one wants to be near him because they are frightened of him. But inside Mr Big is very small and lonely. Mr Big lives alone and plays the piano to express his feelings. Suddenly, others do want to be friends with him and Mr Big finds that size doesn’t matter after all.

Synopsis

Mr Big by Ed Vere

Mr Big is strong, Mr Big is tough, Mr Big is, well, big. He has just one small problem - because of the way he looks he just can't get people to stick around. How can he show them that although he may look a little scary, he is just a great big softy inside?

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
