Synopsis

The Little Little House by Jessica Souhami

Joseph and his family feel squashed in their little, little house, with just a yard for the chickens and a small green patch for the goat and cow, so Joseph goes to his Aunty Bella for help. She tells him to bring the chickens into the house. Result? - chaos. But when Joseph goes back to Aunty Bella, she smiles and tells him to bring in the rooster...then the cow...then the goat, until the little, little house is a dirty, smelly barnyard bursting out of its walls! Only when Joseph follows Aunty Bella's final piece of advice does he discover what a clever woman she is, and learns to count his blessings. Jessica Souhami's hilarious retelling of a delightful nursery tale has bright, bold collage illustrations and a fun text, perfect for reading aloud.
