A playful early picture book about being big and little. 

Me Tall, You Small is a series of playful vignettes in the daily life of a pair of weasels, parent and child. Whether they are having a bubble bath, kicking a soccer ball, or eating ice cream together, simple paired phrases showcase their loving—and amusingly realistic—relationship. After a fall: You boo-boo. Me bandage. At bedtime: Me tired. You wired.

Creative use of language with wordplay, onomatopoeia, and rhyme infuses this book with humor and surprise. Together with the text, expressive line-drawn artwork drives home the funny differences between life as a parent and a child. This silly, touching read-aloud will have both parties celebrating their role, whether tall or small.

Lilli L’Arronge was born in Germany. After studying visual communications at university, she became an illustrator. Today, she writes and illustrates books for adults and children. Her work has been translated into French, Italian, Portuguese and English. In her spare time, Lilli does animation work for film and television.
