The Lovereading4Kids comment

This board book comes complete with a wonderfully warm and woolly Marvin on the cover that’s wonderfully touchy-feely. The story inside though delivers a wonderful lesson in ‘wanting more’! Marvin the sheep takes drastic action to resolve the problem of being too small… such drastic action that he ends up with an unexpected and different problem on his hands. Marvin’s solution to being much, much bigger than everyone else is dramatic...

If you’re looking for other great books for this age range then go to our Babies and Toddlers category.

Featuring Marvin the sheep who just doesn't know when to stop eating, this board book presents a fluffy front cover.


My favourite book of the year...A quirky tale with gorgeously humorous illustrations, this is a marvellous first book. Jane Simmons 'simple and bold illustrations enhance this hilarious picture book.
