Big and Little are the very best of friends. They do everything together! That is until one day, when Big suddenly hides away inside his shell . . .

Little tries every method to get Big to come out and play again - he bakes him his favourite cake, he even asks all of his friends for help... but nothing seems to be working! What could possibly be wrong?

Industry Reviews

"Swales's wide-eyed figures and simple shapes recall Chris Haughton's work, with extra volume and detail."
--Publisher's Weekly

"A refreshing story about friendship and the sensitive complexity of it at a level that even the youngest of children can appreciate. Sometimes what we all need is for those we love most to pause and just give us a hug for no reason in particular."
-- Wandering Bookseller

"Tender and vibrant illustrations and a sweet, sweet friendship are a good start. What happens after Big hides?"
--Jileen Moore, Square Books
