Product description

Amazon Review

Little Hotchpotch is, quite simply, one of the most delightful books you are ever likely to read, and is deserving of heavy-duty praise.

Written by poet Brian Patten, this stunning tale of a little beast who doesn't seem to belong to any particular species at all is boldly and cleverly executed, wittily combining words and pictures to illustrate the adorable (not to mention confused!) creature's plight.

As Little Hotchpotch goes in search of his roots, the reader is treated to a gloriously colourful and somewhat surreal treat that instantly captures the imagination. This will, without a doubt, become an all time favourite for any small child. (Age 3 and over) --Susan Harrison


This work concerns the adventures of a creature that doesn't know what it is. And so he starts a quest, from the snowy icebergs to the dry savannah asking the question "Who am I?" But nobody knows - until the wise old owl is asked; he knows the answer, and the clue is in the title.
