A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

Best-selling author of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen has a gift for playful humour for the very young. How Small, in this case a fly, can outsmart Big – an elephant, hippo and a great big tiger - is delightfully played out allowing the child reader to follow and wonder before being delighted by the surprise! Bold illustrations capture the drama perfectly.
