Little Why by Jonny Lambert (Children's, Picture book, 10/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

  February 2016, Little Tiger Press, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy

Summary from Little Tiger Press
Little Why just can’t stay in line. There is so much to see – like Giraffe’s long-lofty leggy legs and Wildebeest’s spiny-spiky horns. Why can’t he have legs and horns like them? And then Little Why spots Crocodile’s snippy-snappy teeth… Look out! 

Nayu's thoughts
A cute book for little questioners who want to be different and don't fully know that being themselves is more than okay. While I don't have children I have been around inquisitive minds who constantly ask why. Little Why gets almost literally underfoot and feels that every animal apart from him has a useful feature about themselves. 

It's a great way to learn about animals,  to see that the grass is not greener on the other side-everyone has elements which make them special and unique. The watercolour style of illustrations fita well with the atmosphere of the tale, and helps the animals look realisitic. A must have on your bookshelf!
