Tug of War

Written by Naomi Howarth

Tug of War Synopsis

Financial Times: 'gorgeously vibrant' Tortoise is on the hunt for a friend, but only encounters huge Elephant and Hippo, who are mean about his small size and wrinkly skin. But although Tortoise isn't big, he is certainly brainy! He sets out to show Elephant and Hippo that biggest doesn't mean best by challenging them to a tug of war. They sneeringly accept... but little do they know that they have really agreed to fight each other! A funny, heart-warming retelling of this well-known folk tale about brains vs brawn with beautiful, stylish illustrations. A special book that teaches that wit and wisdom are more important than size and physical strength, and friendship is what matters most.
