Author(s): Todd Parr
With child-like smiling stick figures, bold, brilliant colour and upbeat text, picture-book creator Todd Parr tells us lots of things that are okay. 'It's okay to wear two different socks. It's okay to be scared. It's okay to laugh out loud.' The message is illustrated with Parr's usual spectacular, multicultural mix of blue, green, brown, yellow and purple faces. Parr's quirky artwork and eternally optimistic books are truly irresistible, for both grown-ups and kids.
