Sometimes the biggest stories come from the smallest beginnings...
Winner of the 2020 Oscar's Book Prize!

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.

Winner of the 2020 Oscar's Book Prize and from the award-winning creator of The Storm Whale and Granddad's Island, Tad is the perfect story for everyone who's ever grown up, or still has a way to go...
