Milo Armadillo by Jan Fearnley

This is an enchanting picture book about learning to love things for what they are. All Tallulah wants for her birthday is a pink fluffy rabbit, but Gran knits her something very different: a pink, fluffy armadillo! You can even knit your own Milo Armadillo with an exclusive knitting pattern! Jan Fearnley has sold over 350,000 books worldwide in just three years.


* A real delight. A wonderfully heart-warming book with great illustrations. Angels and Urchins * A sweet story about accepting people for what they are, with an attractive mix of illustration and collage. The Daily Mail
