Synopsis

A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper

Discover the joy of having (or being!) a library card in this funny, feel-good story about the unseen world of cards both big and small. Every card has a special job to do. Long Card eats lots of cake and sings lots of songs as a ... birthday card! Wide Card travels all round the world as a ... postcard! But what will Little Card's job be? Here's a clue... There's a very special place (full of books) that might just be perfect for a card his size... As long as he can whisper! Quirky and adorable, this tale of a little card who gives it all he's got is complete with an unexpected twist and a surprise, joyful ending.
