The ultimate picture book dream team return with a charming tale of star-crossed (quite literally) alien love and an entertainingly conveyed message about difference and tolerance. Told in Donaldson’s trademark flawless verse, The Smeds and the Smoos is another classic to rival Zog and The Gruffalo.
Winner of the British Book Awards Children's Illustrated & Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2020
Soar into space with this glorious love story of alien folk, from the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man.
The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue). So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove. But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There's even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate!
With fabulous rhymes and breathtaking illustrations, this book is literally out of this world!
