Synopsis

The Big Adventure of the Smalls by Helen Stephens

This is a picture book about how big things can happen to little people, too by award-winning author/illustrator Helen Stephens. It's the night of the Small Hall Grand Ball and everyone's getting ready. All except for Paul and Sally Small, who are too little to enjoy the fun. But when Paul's friend, Mr Puddles, goes missing, the only thing to do is sneak into the party in search of his beloved bear. In The Big Adventures of the Smalls, Kate Greenaway Award nominee Helen Stephens produces a fantastic bedtime story for children who know what it's like to be one of 'the little people' but have a big imagination.
