Description
WELCOME TO THE SMALL WORLD: A BOOK OF BIG SURPRISES! is a new kind of kids’ picture book: a compilation of vignettes capturing these hardworking and adventuresome minis – miniature railroad figurines – at work, at play and in a variety of surprising situations. From trying to milk a giant cow at the farm, to selling balloons at the fair, to running from a giant squid, these minis guide us along a delightful tour of their small world, which is really our own! All of these heroes, and many more, share two things in common: They get along in our world oblivious to the challenges around them – and they all measure in at 3/4" tall, the size of a dime. Kelly McManus partners with fine art photographer Kurt Moses (Un Petit Monde) for this debut children’s book project. With a quirky and humorous narrative (a la Richard Scarry), and over 40 stunning images, Kelly and Kurt capture their love of all things magical by igniting your imagination as you enter this new Small World.
