Globe 100 2019 Picture book. Warm and gentle text exquisitely enhanced by deceptive illustrations.

A children's picture book that tugs at the heartstrings of adults is a very special thing. With warm illustrations and lyrical text, Small in the City explores big emotions of loss, love and hope in this story of a child's search for a missing pet.
