Little Leonardo by Julia Hubery


Little Leonardo by Julia Hubery

Leonardo is a little owl with BIG ideas! He makes incredible inventions to help out his friends: Spring-stomping Boing-boots for Rabbit, a Whizzy-wheeled Skate-banger for Tortoise and a Natty Nut Grabber for Squirrel! But then, one dark and scary night, it's Leonardo who needs a hand...Children will love the inventiveness of Leonardo's nifty little gizmos in this charming picture book about helping others. A heart-warming tale of creativity and friendship from Julia Hubery, author of A Friend Like You. Little fingers will love stroking the fuzzy texture of Leonardo's waistcoat on every page.
