When Mouse heads off to a family reunion, Little Elliot decides go for a walk. As he explores each busy street, he sees families in all shapes and sizes. In a city of millions, Little Elliot feels very much alone-until he finds he has a family of his own!
I really loved this cute story! I may be a biased fan of Little Elliot stories anyway, but the illustrations in this story are so well done and make reading the smooth story a really fun experience. I loved the touching message of the story- family is bigger than we sometimes realize!
