This book about friendship and sign language was created by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, with a group of deaf children in a workshop organized by the not-for-profit organisation Life & Deaf which helps deaf children to explore their identities through poetry, film, performance and art. Featuring Nick Sharratt's bright and accessible illustrations, this is another beautiful picture book from the team behind Goat Goes to Playgroup and Toddle Waddle.
