A beautifully endearing tale from author Charlotte Zolotow and illustrated by WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE creator Maurice Sendak.
Sendak’s soft pastel illustrations beautifully complement this endearing tale of a little girl’s search for a perfect present.
Little Girl really needs to find a birthday present for her mother in her favourite colour. But with so many things to choose from, she’s going to need some help from Rabbit . . .
And so they search, learning about colours as they go.
