Written, Illustrated & Narrated by S C Cunningham

Ever wish you could ask someone the big life questions? Tom and Vincent have a full list for their friend, Ginormous Jo.  A unique family of three dogs and a kitten are the best of friends. Tom, a little white dog and Vincent, a small kitten, play quietly in the backyard until they start asking questions about life. Are they special? Why do they feel they don’t fit in?

Jo teaches them how they are already special. And that through recycling, they can help save the whole world!

This darling little picture book continues the Ginormous Serious stressing the importance of asking questions and being honest with your elders. It helps model how children should feel free to express their feelings to loved ones older than them, and follow the advice. It stresses how anyone can be special by their personal effort to better the world. A great book for any children’s library especially as a gift from a grandparent or sibling.
