Each book has a delightful story to match the bright and bold full-color illustrations on every page. The stories have the kind of cheerful simplicity that toddlers always find especially appealing. Heavy board covers and pages will withstand rough treatment from little hands. (Ages 2-3)Little Mouse looks into a mirror and wishes he were as big as his other animal friends.

It's a friendly little ladybug -- even smaller than Little Mouse!Busby, Ailie is the author of 'As Big As a Pig', published 2001 under ISBN 9780764153839 and ISBN 0764153838.
