Tall by Jez Alborough

As we have seen in his first book Hug, featured previously, Jez Alborough excels at telling stories with minimal words — just five different words this time, to be exact. And once you look at his beautifully expressive illustrations, you will understand why: his drawings already say so much that there’s really no need for words — well OK, just one per page.

In Tall, Bobo the monkey returns, and this time, instead of looking for a hug, he’s now trying his best to be, well, tall.

This is a sweet story about how it’s nice to have friends who can help to lift you up high; but if you do fall back down to earth, it’s also comforting to know that someone who loves you is always there for you.
