Synopsis

Nobody's Perfect by David Elliott

From award-winning author, David Elliot, comes a funny celebration of perfect imperfections told from a child's point of view. From award-winning author, David Elliot, comes a celebration of patience, positivity, and perfect imperfections! Everybody says nobody's perfect - and, it's true. Your best friend can be a bit of a show-off and your mum can be a little bit stubborn...But sometimes people can come pretty close - and you can too! Told from a child's point of view, David Elliot's witty text and Sam Zuppardi's fresh, dynamic illustrations show that life may be more about patience than perfection, and that focusing on the positive reaps its own rewards.

Reviews

The combination of simplicity and sophistication is rare, uplifting and (almost) perfect. -- Kate Kellaway The Observer I love Zuppardi's exuberant, scribbly style illustrations with their bright acrylic backgrounds and the first person narration works well though there is a slight inconsistency in the pattern of telling. -- Red Reading Hub Red Reading Hub Being considerate of others as well as focusing on the positives are important life skills that are sensitively explained from a child's point of view in this tale. -- Prima Baby & Pregnancy Magazine Prima Baby & Pregnancy Magazine

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
