Review

A collection of beautifully illustrated new poems for toddlers, preschoolers, and anyone who loves having fun with words, A Great Big Cuddle documents the problems and pleasures of being very young.

This joyous, high energy and high quality hardback celebrates the talents of two Children’s Laureates, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, who demonstrate that poetry and illustration is for everyone, even small children.
