Illustrated by Kim Lewis.
The little fox didn't want to wait until tomorrow. He wanted to play another game and he wanted to play it now. "I'm not your friend anymore," he said. "And I'm not going to be your friend again . . . ever."
It's not always easy to stop playing when you are having fun. So when his mother says it's time to go, the little fox insists on staying. But as the meadow grass begins to whisper and the evening stars appear, he starts to think again.
Once again Sam McBratney has succeeded in capturing the raw emotions of the very young. With wry observation he presents a perfect snapshot of a power struggle that every parent will recognise. This beautifully balanced prose is enlivened by Kim Lewis' magnificent artwork, creating a memorable picture book to be enjoyed by all generations.
