Synopsis

Go Home, Little One by Cate James

Florence loved spring. She loved summer, too, and autumn. But she didn't know if she loved winter because she always slept right through it. Florence goes on an adventure with her squirrel twin friends, to discover what winter is like...and learns that it isn't for hedgehogs. A beautifully told autumn story with lively illustrations that introduces favourite forest animals in a cautionary tale, capturing childhood fears about being lost, and the reassuring warmth of home. Children can spot the bushy tail or sharp snout (with even sharper teeth) of the animal who follows Florence as she goes deeper and deeper into the forest, as well as the little mouse who accompanies the friends on their journey.

Reviews

Go Home, Little One by Cate James is one of two lovely new books from Words and Pictures. In this one we meet Florence who loves every season except perhaps winter for she has yet to experience it. Of course this is the cue for an adventure and a charmingly reassuring tale. Armadillo
