Some concepts can be hard to understand. Take size, for instance. How do you know when something is small? What's the difference between medium and large? Where does huge fit in? What do you do if something is smaller than small - say, if it's itty-bitty? All of these relative concepts are explored in Small Medium Large with clever text, fun illustrations, and lots of humour. The normal book conventions are also played with (turning the book sideways so that they all fit on a page, having characters 'wait offscreen' until it's their turn) but these don't get in the way of the concepts. This will be a strong addition to concept book collections.
I read an advance review copy from NetGalley. Small Medium Large will be published on August 15, 2011.
