The Big Adventure of the Smalls

Publisher: Egmont

When Paul and Sally Small sneak out of bed to take a peek at the goings-on at the Small Hall Grand Ball, Mr Puddles the teddy bear has a nasty accident - he falls through the banisters and simply has to be rescued.

With a level of excitement to rival an action movie, the siblings begin by sliding down the banisters and eliciting the help of a suit of armour before moving on to explore a dark and spooky secret passageway. Finally, they must adopt a number of clever disguises, shimmy up a statue and swing on chandeliers before they can get Mr Puddles back to where he belongs.

A lavishly illustrated and imaginative flight of fancy interpreting an adult environment through the eyes and minds of small children.
