The Lovereading4Kids comment

Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen writes with great humour and economy in this delicious tease of a book. Just how much chaos can one tiny fly cause? Plenty! The great big elephant, the great big hippo and the great big tiger are all determined to get that one tiny fly. But, guess who has the last laugh? Kevin Waldron’s illustrations capture the humour of the unequal battle between big and tiny.
