What I like most is this pencil. It is red outside and red inside. Its colour comes out like a red ribbon. It's what I like most in the world. Except for...

A little girl tells us about all her favourite things, from her light-up shoes, to hot, steamy chips, to her red pencil. But the girl knows that, even as her feet grow, her plate empties, and her pencil shortens, there's something she'll always love ... and that is what she likes the very, very most.

An intimate ode to the unwavering love a child has for their mother, this tender, lyrical story is brought exquisitely to life by Zhu Cheng-Liang, a recipient of a New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mary Murphy excels at writing cosy, sweet books which have a hug at their heart, and it's wonderful to see a Chinese mum and daughter portrayed, too. * BookTrust *
The chorus perfectly evokes the circular nature of the child's imagination, while Zhu Cheng-Liang's striking, romantic paintings are full of amusing detail. * The Irish Times - Christmas Books Round-Up *
A gentle, profound book about love - don't miss it. * The Irish Independent, Children's Books of the Year *
Zhu Cheng-Liang's pencil and watercolour drawings complement Murphy's words beautifully. * The Irish Independent, Top Picks from Elaina Ryan *
An intimate ode to the unwavering love a child has for their mother, this tender, lyrical story is brought exquisitely to life by Zhu Cheng-Liang. * Parent Talk *
