AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Ballad of Dexi Lee is a classic misfit tale about a little girl. A little girl with giant hands. Life for Dexi is tough. With her very big hands come some very big problems. Then, a trip to the zoo transforms her world. There she discovers a world of animals with all sorts of strange and unusual features. Dexi suddenly realises being different is actually pretty clever. Using rhyme and repetition, the book is beautifully illustrated with colour paintings by award-winning artist Lucy Culliton.' (Publisher's blurb)
