By Leigh Hodgkinson
This fabulously stylish, witty tale about the pitfalls of showing off is a dazzling gem of a picture book from the amazingly talented Leigh Hodgkinson.
Limelight Larry is delighted when he finds an empty book - he can be the star of the story! Then a whole host of storybook characters arrive and Larry - much to his outrage - is pushed out of the limelight . . .
This book is illustrated with style and sparkle by Leigh. There's even an amazing super-super-shiny foil page that shows Larry off at his very best. A picture book treat that will delight readers time and time again with its cast of funny, friendly characters.
