What About Me? Said the Flea


The book celebrates the power of imagination, determination, and the good things that come in teeny tiny packages.

When a little girl sits down at her desk one day to write a story, she struggles to find her inspiration.

Luckily for her there's a whole host of potential picture-book characters who want to be the star of her story and make their cases convincingly. There's the magical, proud unicorn with sparkly hooves and a glittery horn. There are the big, burly bears hosting a picnic, the loveable llamas in pyjamas, the stylish sloth, the lion, the penguins, and even a roar-some, claw-some dinosaur .

But, unnoticed by the little girl, an even littler flea is hopping and jumping around, hoping to be the one she chooses to write a story about. "What about me?" it cries.

With all the big characters and commotion, will the flea ever be noticed?

We recommend this book for children aged 2 years and up.
