By Martin Waddell

Illustrated by Penny Dale

A story about growing up, little by little, from master storyteller Martin Waddell

Once there was a baby in the house - and to that baby, Mum and Dad and Jill and John and Uncle Tom were giants. But little by little, that baby grew up - until she became a giant too! Martin Waddell says of the book, "Small children live in a world designed for big people. I wrote this story to help them understand it, and the idea of growing older."
