Small and Big 2015 single work picture book children's

'Inspired by Karen's small son's attention to detail, 'Small and Big' celebrates the wonder of the world through the eyes of a child. Small and Big are the best of friends but they have very different personalities. Big is loud and confident and certain that it's the big things in life that matter, while the more reserved Small finds beauty in the details. When Small finds himself hopelessly lost in the city, Small and Big both discover what really matters: each other. A beautiful story about being lost and being found again, 'Small and Big' is a little book with a big heart. ' (Publication summary)
