Curious little Henry from the award-winning books When You Were Small and Where You Came From has a new question for his mother in this charming new picture book. “What was it like when you were small?” he asks. His mother proceeds to describe her adventures to him, all about when she was little – very little!
An enchanting book that’ll strike a chord with any new parent, I remember asking my parents the same question. In my imagination, the world was in black and white like the photographs and the films. Maybe one of my parents told me that. I think I liked the idea that colour entered the world at the same time I did.
The illustrations by Julie Morstad are charming and beautiful, my photography does not do them justice.
