Sometimes the biggest stories come from the smallest beginnings...

Meet Tad.

She's the smallest tadpole in a big pond, and lives there with all her tadbrothers and tadsisters.

Although something else lives there too... BIG BLUB! And when everyone else starts to disappear, Tad starts to wonder if Big Blub will get her too...

Or is everyone else going somewhere else; somewhere better? And if so, will Tad ever get there too?

A big story about a tiny tadpole - about growing up, branching out, and taking a leap into life.

From the award-winning author and illustrator of The Storm Whale and Granddad's Island, and the perfect story for everyone who's ever grown up, or still has a way to go...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Benji Davies
"Benji Davies (The Storm Whale and Grandad's Island) is fast establishing himself as a leading light in children's picture books" - Huffington Post

"An author-illustrator destined to be one of this generation's great talents" - Huffington Post

Praise for THE STORM WHALE
"Like the best picture books, "The Storm Whale" has an outsize emotional force that often comes from what the author-illustrator Benji Davies leaves out" - New York Times

Praise for THE STORM WHALE IN WINTER
"Intensely atmospheric, full of biting cold, tender detail and warm light, this is a book to cuddle up with" - The Guardian

Praise for GRANDAD'S ISLAND
"A gently magical story about bidding farewell to a grandparent, Davies' vibrant palette infuses the story with a hopeful spirit" - Huffington Post

"Benji Davies didn't invent the melancholy sea story, but he sure knows how to deliver one...'Grandad's Island' metaphorically and movingly re-imagines the experience of loss" - Boston Globe
