The bold, brilliantly colored, clever book from the creator of I Am Bat.
When puffin Steve meets puffin Steve, neither can believe it. Surely one of them must be the first Steve, the best Steve, the Stevest of Steves...But is a name really worth fighting over?
Praise for I Am Bat:
"A quirky gem...Old and young alike will have to giggle at the bat's show of speedy adaptability. Excellent visual storytelling aligned with eloquent brevity." --Kirkus
"Novel and funny... A deceptively simple story that packs a subtle message about sharing and altruism. A thoroughly engaging read that is sure to be a hit at storytime." --School Library Journal
Two puffins compete to be the Number One Steve in this very funny, brightly illustrated story.
Morag Hood has a unique voice. Her idiosyncratic, wry humour permeates everything she does, creating books of style and irresistible charm. Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea was a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration, marking a glorious picture book debut. Morag spent her childhood writing stories, painting, and dreaming of having a pet duck. Following a degree in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art, and an MA in Children's Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, Morag returned to live in her native Edinburgh with her husband. She still likes making stories, printing, cutting and sticking, and freshly sharpened pencils. The pet duck is yet to make an appearance.
