Can two very different families find their space in the world together? A wonderful wordless picture book offers stylish art, humor, and charm. A mother owl and her three little owlets live happily on their branch. That is, until the bat family moves in.

But babies are curious little creatures, and that curiosity, along with a wild, stormy night, might just bring these two families together. With subtly and hilariously shifting facial expressions and gestures, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick brings her accessible graphic style to a warm and ingenious wordless tale that is sure to bring smiles to readers of all ages.

Size is relative, but everything is worth seeing in this concept book from the illustrator of And Tango Makes Three--now available as a Classic Board Book. Beginning with a beautiful close-up of a "big" ladybug, this adorable board book artfully depicts the concept of scale as it zooms out from the bug, to a flower, to a cow, all the way to an expansive spread of sky. Then author Henry Cole masterfully zooms back in from that sky, to a tree, to a house, to a window, all the way to the end where an adorable dog is taking a "little" nap. Young readers will love the lush illustrations of the animals, objects, and scenery of a farm, and they'll delight in seeing how something "big" can suddenly seem "little" with every turn of a page!
