The Smeds and the Smoos Synopsis

Soar into space with this glorious love story of alien folk, from the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man.

The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue).

 

So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove.

 

But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There’s even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate!

  • With fabulous rhymes and breathtaking illustrations, this book is literally out of this world!
  • From the creators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and ZOG, which have all been made into animated films shown on BBC1
  • Zog and the Flying Doctors animation will be shown on BBC1 December 2020.
