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, and will delight readers time and time again with its cast of funny, friendly characters. Praise for Limelight Larry:'A book that's full of fun.' - Glasgow Herald; 'A funky and flamboyantly illustrated story. A good life lesson on the joys of sharing.' - Junior 'A perfect blend of art, story, humour . . . I love it.' - Bookbag
