My Brother is an Avocado

by Tracy Darnton, illustrated by Yasmeen Ismail - £7.99  Simon & Schuster Ltd (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781471187704 | ISBN 10: 1471187705

A warm and funny stage-by-stage tour through all the sizes of a growing baby – from teeny-tiny poppy seed to giant watermelon – from an exciting new picture book partnership!
 
It’s hard to wait for a new baby to join the family, especially when it’s still growing inside Mum’s tummy. But when Dad describes the size of the baby at each stage, one little girl imagines, while she waits, all the fun she can have with her baby brother as a teeny-tiny poppy seed, then a grape, then a lemon... But she’s not quite sure how she feels about having an avocado for a brother. Or an onion. Or – gulp – a watermelon!
 
This joyful picture book playfully explores the loooong waiting game for a much-anticipated new sibling – with an adorable twist at the end...
 
Recommended for readers aged 3-99
