In this book, Gavin Bishop retells the old classic story of Tom Thumb. It's a great story of adventure and here Gavin emphasises the moral aspects of it - we need to learn to accept people for what they are despite their differences. The book is illustrated in such a way that you can read the text or just 'read' the pictures - this is done by sequences of small boxes that follow the text. Gavin uses this innovative technique to great effect and his sumptuous, richly coloured illustrations provide a visual feast. He has set the story in the 18th Century and this means that there are several elaborate and strikingly beautiful illustrations. Gavin Bishop is extremely highly thought of in New Zealand and around the world. He won the Children's Book of the Year award in the 2000 New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards.
