The beautifully-written bedtime story of a boy’s favourite toy which goes missing on a trip to Grandma’s house.
When Tom goes to Grandma’s house to stay, he remembers to pack everything – except his favourite toy, Small.
Tom can’t sleep without Small and imagines him sad and lonely in his bedroom in the dark…
Small can’t sleep either, so he climbs out of the window to go looking for Tom. He runs and runs, leaps over puddles, trips and falls – Poor Small!
Through dark, dark woods Small keeps running…until he arrives at Grandma’s house.
Meanwhile, Tom is also out of bed and creeping downstairs to find…SMALL! And he’ll keep him safe forever.

Small is a beautiful, softly illustrated picture book that pre-school children will simply love.
When Tom goes to visit his grandparents overnight, he forgets to pack Small, his favourite toy. At bedtime he is inconsolable, and worries that Small is all alone in the dark and just cannot get to sleep. But when the lights go out, Tom embarks on his search for his little pal, and Small decides to have an adventure all of his own...
Every parent knows that the loss of a favourite toy can wreak havoc in a small child's life, and that the loss represents a loss of security and comfort, particularly in unfamiliar surroundings. This delightful book takes this everyday toddler experience and turns it into a gentle adventure story, filled with familiar childhood themes, hope, humour and, most importantly of all, comfort. Perfect for sharing and reading aloud, Small is reminiscent of Shirley Hughes' Alfie stories, and would make a great gift for children of 18 months and over. --Susan HarrisonFrom the Back Cover:
