Too Big

Too Big

By: Edgar Parin d'Aulaire, Ingri d'Aulaire
Published by: Doubleday Doran & Company, Inc
Publication Date: 1945


THE little boy who was Too Big has a wonderful answer for his growing-up problems, in a story full of the whimsical, rebellious humor children share only with very special grown-ups.

The rare nonsense of Too Big was written by Uncle John, seventy-eight-year-old Dr. John Cunliffe, in a letter to his friend, four-year-old Ola. And Ola loved it so much that his parents, the well-known author-artists of Wings for Per and many other pictures books, have made it into their first book for the very young.
