What to Read After... Holly Webb 12/05/21
The New Small Person
Elmore Green loved his bedroom. He had his own tv, his special toys and no-one ate his jellybeans. His parents said he was the best child in the world. But then another smaller person arrived. Everyone thought he was gorgeous. Except Elmore. Especially when the smaller person licked his jellybeans. And moved into his bedroom...
But one night Elmore had a scary dream. The smaller person shouted at the monster and hugged Elmore. Next day Elmore played with baby Albert, and discovered that having a brother was fun... So long as he never ate Elmore's orange jellybeans.
An endearingly funny story, featuring Lauren Child's heart-warming illustrations, about the arrival of a new sibling and the havoc that ensues.
