Stylised Illustrations and stunning design on every page … it has a prize position on my family’s bookcase. Science and art taught though play and activities. It’s another wonderful book by people who understand what children (and adults) want. I’m a huge fan of OKIDO, this has strengthened my admiration for what they do.
If you have kids, nephews, nieces, little brothers or sisters, friends with kids, god children, friends who are teachers, graphic designers, scientists or illustrators – this is the perfect gift!
I give it the magpie seal of approval.

A mission to address the lack of diverse, non-majority narratives in children’s lit.
Alex T Smith’s new picture book is a great example of how those who are championing that vision are changing the status quo. Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion is a playful reinvention of the classic fairy tale, with a young black girl as the central character and a hungry lion. The story is set to the backdrop of a sun-soaked Savannah.
Little Red is on her way to visit her poorly auntie. On the way she encounters all kinds of potentially dangerous wild animals: sleeping crocodiles, great big elephants, tall giraffes, chattering monkeys… and you guessed it, a hungry lion.
Alex T Smith’s illustrations will make your face hurt from excessive grinning, a hilarious story of brains over brawn.
