The Smelly Sprout by Allan Plenderleith


The Smelly Sprout by Allan Plenderleith

All he wants is to find a home, but thrown out into the snow on Christmas day, the smelly sprout comes up against a terribly rude Christmas tree, an awfully impolite snowman and, worst of all - a greedy fox. But will a chance encounter with someone as small as the sprout change everything? With deliciously witty illustrations and a story to touch the heart, this charming tale is loved by children and parents alike. And one thing's for sure, love them or loathe them, you'll never look at a sprout in the same way again.
