Mine’s Bigger Than Yours!

Jeanne Willis, ill. Adrian Reynolds

Andersen Press


September 2008

A big attention-grabbing title with Jeanne Willis’s name underneath immediately put this picture book at the top of the waiting pile. The previous collaboration by this pair – Who’s In The Loo? – won the Red House Picture Book Award and was overall winner of the Sheffield Children’s Book Award. I’d be surprised if this had the same success. I found it rather disappointing. The repetitive narrative is formulaic and the punch-page, when it comes, left me feeling short-changed. The Scary Monster illustrations are great though.
