Mr Big is big. In fact, normal-sized things are just that little bit too small for him.
However, when Mr Big buys a big new pen and mixes his own special ink, it appears he has found a magical solution to his problems.
This charming story by Hiawyn Oram demonstrates how much fun writing can be, especially when you have a magic pen!
The bright and engaging illustrations by Nick Schon bring the magic in the story to life.
Pages 14 and 15 feature a storyboard which offers children the opportunity to recap and retell the story in their own words.
