Wellington's Big Day Out
Table of Contents
About The Book
When Wellington is given a new jacket exactly like Dad’s for his birthday, he’s delighted! But his delight turns to disappointment when he tries it on and it’s far too big. Even worse, what if it’s not that the jacket is too big, but that he’s too small? Luckily, Wellington’s dad has a plan, and on an exciting day out that includes a ride on the bus, a super-size strawberry sundae, a toot on a tuba, and a visit to his granddad, Wellington learns that he’s growing up exactly as fast as he should be—and just like his dad.
About The Illustrator
Steve Small has worked in animation for over thirty years as a director, designer, and animator.

He’s the illustrator of I’m Sticking with You and the author and illustrator of The Duck Who Didn’t Like Water, Wellington’s Big Day Out, and Brave Little Bear. Steve lives in London, and when he’s not painting and drawing, you’ll likely find him feeding the crows on Blackheath Common.
