`[A story] about unconditional love . . . this is what I'd want to say to my own baby'
-- Hello! Magazine
'I'm a grim and grumpy little Small and nobody loves me at all,' said a small fox. But that's not true and Small's mother is determined to prove that her love is limitless - no matter what! With sparkly foil stars and a small, sturdy board format, this is the perfect story to share with the very young. A beautiful, lyrical, loving book about setting big worries to rest, by the extremely talented Debi Gliori.See all Product description

Small: But what about when we're dead and gone? Will you love me then? Does love go on?
Large held Small snug as they looked out at the night, at the moon in the dark and the stars shining bright.
Large: Small, look at the stars, how they shine and glow. But some of those stars died a long time ago. Still they shine through the evening skies. Love, like starlight, never dies."
I think by removing the question about death, the author and/or publisher is doing their target audience a disservice. Death is a hard subject for children and adults alike, and these beautiful words eased the heart. I find the new lines don't scan so well, and don't wrap the book up as well.
It's great for anyone who has children who misbehave (don't they all?) Just to let them know you love them 'no matter what'!
I've bought it for a few people now as presents, including friends who adopted a troubled youngster. They love it too. (This was after a relative of mine with two well-behaved girls was pontificating about why this child misbehaved and how they didn't know what 'genes' he carried before they adopted him.) Good grief.
Anyway, they love this. It's a great way to show a small person that you're on their side, even when they behave badly.
The ending was a bit difficult to swallow initially (the life of a star was initially lost on my children), but after reading it hundreds of times (not exaggerating!), I've come around to it!
I'm unhappy that I've read a few comments here that the words have been revised in other versions. This was unnecessary, sad and unjust to children who DO NOT need feeling to be watered down. Please read those comments and check the version you purchase. It's such an amazing book you/your children deserve the best.
