The Smeds and the Smoos

Julia Donaldson, illus by Axel Scheffler


Soar into space with a glorious love story of alien folk that's literally out of this world.

The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue). So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove. But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There's even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate! With fabulous rhymes and breathtaking illustrations, this is a sure-fire winner from the bestselling creators of Stick Man.
