Next, I brushed my hare and put on my new pear of shoes.

Mum painted her nails before we set out for the day.

Join Banjo and his mum on what starts as a straightforward day out, only to have it upended by homophones (two words with the same pronunciation but with different meanings), turning the narrative into the delightfully absurd. Kids and adults alike will love this joyful new wordplay extravaganza from debut author Mel Amon with illustrations by international superstar Sophie Beer. The hilarious wordplay combined with delightful illustrations have kids 'in on the joke' from the very beginning.

'Hare or hair, pear or pair, son or sun - abounds in a glorious new picture book from author Mel Amon, illustrated by national treasure Sophie Beer. Good Morning, My Deer! is a celebration of homophones- two words that sound the same but mean very different things ... For kids aged 3+ who love a bit of nonsense, those just starting to learn to read, and those with an appreciation for the absurdities of the English language, this debut picture book offers plenty to look at and discuss. Amon's straightforward text turns an ordinary day into something quite extraordinary, and Beer's bright and instantly recognisable illustrations are the perfect companion. Older children and grown-ups alike will enjoy hunting for easter eggs in the pages (not all the homophones are in the text), and there's a deep sense of satisfaction when you correctly identify pie/pi, beats/beets, or jeans/genes.'

' F unny and memorable ... A n absurd and clever narrative ... It could really be used as a prompt starter for a game on words and what they mean, especially for little kids who are building up their vocabulary or are learning to read.'
-Mariana Ruiz, GeekDad

Praise for illustrator Sophie Beer's Change Starts with Us-
'Illuminated by a bright, bold colour scheme, carefully crafted scenes reveal sensible good habits, like conserving water and reducing waste, that can help save the planet. Beer, creator of Love Makes a Family, depicts diverse illustrated young characters ... All children will see themselves in these pages, and feel a bit more empowered to make better choices.'
-School Library Journal
