Synopsis

The Big Red Squirrel and the Little Rhinoceros by Mischa Damjan

'A forgotten treasure!' - The Bookseller highlights A retro book with a real sixties feel, fondly remembered by many of today's parents. Beautifully illustrated by the great Ralph Steadman. An important message about being yourself, magically told. A beautifully imaginitive gem from the 60's, brought bang up-to-date while maintaining a wonderful retro feel. Life in the forest is difficult for the small animals. The Squirrel, Mouse and Frog always have to be on the look-out for the big creatures, such as the Lion, Rhinoceros and Crocodile. But one day things magically change... the little animals grow bigger and the large animals shrink. But is live really any easier for the Squirrel now that he is King of the forest? THE ILLUSTRATOR Ralph Steadman is a cartoonist and caricaturist famous for his illustrations for Punch, Private Eye, the Daily Telegraph, the New York Times and Rolling Stone and for his work with gonzo writer Hunter S Thompson. Titles include: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Joke's Over and editions of the classics Animal Farm and Alice in Wonderland.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
