Review quote

"Alex Latimer's stylish, unexpected tale Pig and small offers lots to think about, with its simple, witty cartoons (plus knitted details), as a pig and a bug overcome their size difference to be friends." -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * "Alex Latimer's fourth picture book is another modern delight. His illustrations are fresh and funny... Pig and Small's story is endearing and amusing. Latimer is a picture book talent to keep an eye on, breathing new life into a timeless territory." * Books for Keeps * "The story is a hoot and the expressive illustrations match the text perfectly. A winner!" * Peters e-gazette * "It's a charming tale of friendship and overcoming differences, with a nice twist at the end." * Parents in Touch *show more
