Synopsis

Cuil Bheag Og (Tiny Little Fly) by Michael Rosen

A stunning, bold and funny picture book from Michael Rosen and rising star illustrator Kevin Waldron, in the Irish language for very first time!When Tiny Little Fly sees great big toes (and lands on a great big nose), the poor elephant tries - tramp, crush, tramp - but can't catch it. Off flies the fly! The teasing insect easily misses the rhino's roll, squash, roll and the tiger's swat, swoop, snatch too but ... these very BIG animals are getting VERY annoyed! How will Tiny Little Fly's adventure end? Will he get away and fly fly fly? From Michael Rosen and Kevin Waldron, translated by Gabriel Rosenstock, comes this wonderful read-aloud story for the very young that chalks one up for the little guy.
