The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.

This fabulously stylish, contemporary and witty book about the pitfalls of showing off is another gem from the amazingly talented Leigh Hodgkinson. This book is brilliantly illustrated with style and sparkle. There's even an amazing super-super-shiny foil page that shows Larry off at his very best. This book will delight readers time and time again.

Synopsis

Limelight Larry by Leigh Hodgkinson

Limelight Larry is delighted when he finds an empty book - he can be the star of the story! Then a whole host of storybook characters arrive and Larry - much to his outrage - is pushed out of the limelight ...
