From award-winning author, David Elliot, comes a funny celebration of perfect imperfections told from a child's point of view.
From award-winning author, David Elliot, comes a celebration of patience, positivity, and perfect imperfections! Everybody says "nobody's perfect" - and, it's true. Your best friend can be a bit of a show-off and your mum can be a little bit stubborn... But sometimes people can come pretty close - and you can too! Told from a child's point of view, David Elliot's witty text and Sam Zuppardi's fresh, dynamic illustrations show that life may be more about patience than perfection, and that focusing on the positive reaps its own rewards.
