Just Right is a delightful and fun picture book with a warm heart and an important message. The book is ideal bedtime reading for any child over two in the run-up to Christmas and beyond. It tells the tale of a king who buys the perfect soft, red cloth to make his daughter, the princess, a cloak. Once the cloak is made, the leftover cloth is passed on and then on again until it ends up being made into a scarf for a very small mouse. The writing is rhythmic with just the right amount of repetition and the vibrant and beautiful pictures bring the story to life.
Just Right is destined to become a Christmas classic.
