The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a brilliantly witty, familiar and well-observed depiction of sibling relationships. Clive is a boy who absolutely loves green. In fact, so much so that he wears no other colour but his sister is always laughing and teasing him that he’s all sorts of green things – like a toad, a pea and even a beastly bug, but of course Clive knows differently but one day he pretends to be a crocodile and eats her sister up! The big, bold illustrations really pack a punch in this cautionary tale about getting your just desserts for teasing.

Synopsis

Green by Mark Sperring

Clive likes green. Green is what Clive likes. “Clive, you’re a cabbage,” his sister laughs. “You’re a sprout, you’re a bean, you’re a little green pea.”
But Clive of course was none of these. A brilliantly witty, familiar and well-observed
depiction of sibling relationships.
