Nothing Like a Puffin by Sue Soltis


Nothing Like a Puffin by Sue Soltis

There's nothing like this book! Bold, charming artwork enlivens a hugely enjoyable game of compare-and-contrast for curious kids and puffin-lovers alike. A puffin is an amazing creature. It's completely unique and one of a kind. A ladder is nothing like a puffin. A house is nothing like a puffin. A newspaper is nothing like a puffin...But wait! Who would have guessed? Could these things be more alike than you think? Young children will love following this mischievous puffin in an entertaining exercise in creative classification - and are guaranteed to start looking at everyday things in a whole new way. This is a hilarious exercise in comparing and contrasting. It encourages kids to use their imagination to identify similarities in the world around them. It features a lively graphic illustration in a brilliant colour palette.
