A triumphant and endearing tale to tickle the smallest listeners.
A very small bunny wants to join the circus and is not put off by a sign reading “Small Animals Need Not Apply.” Though he is too small to wipe his nose or tie his shoes or walk far without a rest, he is not too small to make a BIG impression on the lion, the orangutan, and the other big animals of this circus troupe. This buoyant little tale is at turns funny, endearing, clever—and just right for the smallest child in any family. The brief text and expressive illustrations are great fun to share with a preschooler.

Louise Yates began drawing pictures to go with stories she wrote at a very young age. A Small Surprise is the first published book from this talented young author-artist who obviously understands the art of communicating with the youngest child through words and pictures. She lives in London.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K—A little white bunny refuses to be thwarted by a circus advertisement that states "small animals need not apply." In simple text, the young rabbit shows the other creatures that it may be too small to do certain things like tying shoelaces, but that it can do something pretty special nonetheless. Much like these characters, preschoolers will anticipate the bunny's next move. The illustrations are rendered in soft hues that are soothing yet colorful. The animals, which include a gorilla and giraffe, have wonderfully expressive eyes and gestures. There are a few words in a large font on each page, making it easy for young children to follow along. A veritable game of peek-a-boo at the end—which includes disappearing into and reappearing from a lion's mouth—will enchant and encourage those who usually find themselves too small to do many things and help them recognize their talents.—Linda M.
