When I Was Small

Author(s): Sara O'leary


Curious little Henry from the award-winning When You Where Small (Simply Read Books, 2006) and Where You Came From (Simply Read Books, 2010) - both available from Turnaround - has a new question for his mother: 'What was it like when you were small?' His mother proceeds to describe her adventures to him, telling Henry all about when she was little - very little! Whimsical pen-and-ink drawings with watercolour accents and a lovely minimalist design complement the simple, poetic text in this charming picture book that will delight both children and their parents.
