"Bigger, Bigger" is a New Picture Book Full of Creativity

May 16, 2018

Based on some of the developmental milestones in block play, the star of "Faster! Faster!" and "Higher! Higher!" dons a construction hat for another soaring (and slightly interrupted) exercise in imagination in Leslie Patricelli's new book, "Bigger, Bigger!" 

A box of blocks. A budding builder. Should she build a doghouse? A bridge? A skyscraper? Yes, all of these and more! Bigger, bigger! BIGGEST! But then . . . Boom! Boom! What’s that? Uh-oh . . . After one little girl’s architectural masterpieces grow exponentially, the arrival of an assistant presents a bit of a challenge in this ode to creativity.

Leslie Patricelli is the author-illustrator of "Potty", "Huggy Kissy", and many more best-selling board books for young children starring a beloved bald baby. She is also the author-illustrator of the picture books Faster! Faster! and Higher! Higher!, a Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor Book, and her first chapter book, The Rizzlerunk Club: Best Buds Under Frogs. She lives in Idaho.

"Bigger Bigger!" is available for purchase from Candlewick Publishing here.
