SHORTLISTED for the Teach Primary Book Awards 2021.
Two books in one! Flip the book upside down and choose whether to read from the perspective of the Spots or the Dots, right up until the middle, where the two communities collide.
The Spots live on one side of the hill. The Dots live on the other. Both are fearful and suspicious of the other, but are they really all that different? When a young Spot and a young Dot meet at the top of the hill, they are about to find out...
Find the similarities in others, discover that fear is often based on ignorance, and celebrate difference in this stunning picture book with artwork from award-winning illustrator Marion Deuchars.

"This book is an absolute gem for describing differences and the prejudices that are so often present in society" - Just Imagine

"This apparently simple book is surprisingly powerful... an excellent story to share and enjoy!" - North Somerset Teachers' Book Award
