Tad Written and Illustrated by Benji Davies 2019 First US edition 2020 Age range 3-8
Tad is a big-hearted story that tells of a tadpole named Tad who was the smallest of the smallest in the “whole wide pond”. Tad always had to work extra hard just to keep up with the threat of being gobbled up by Big Blub; because she was small, she had to figure out how to stay alive. Her brothers and sisters were growing up without her - as they grew Tad was left behind - when she was the last one, she had to find the courage to not only survive Big Blub, but also learn to be brave in the face of growing up.
