The Perfect Present

Publisher: Otter Barry Books

The two cats Tom and Mot are best friends and share the same birthday. Tom gives Mot a feather – but could it be a feather from the most spectacular bird in the world? Mot gives Tom a marble – or is it the smallest planet in the universe?

Tom would like to give a whale, a dolphin, a sea monster, an elephant, while Mot would give rivers, mountains, forests and even the sun! But after a joyful day playing together, they realise the best present of them all is spending time with one another.

Petr Horáček’s illustrations are soothing and captivating, transporting you into the world of his characters’ imagination, accompanied by a charming message of spending time together. This heart-warming picture book about the power of imagination and friendship will be the perfect present for bedtime.
