Just Right For Two


A little dog discovers that, sometimes, the best things in life are right under your nose.

Dog thinks he has everything he needs in his big, blue suitcase. It’s perfect for all the little treasures he’s collected, and he’s sure that he doesn’t need anything else to keep him happy.

But then, Dog meets Mouse and everything changes . . . Perhaps, after all, life is richer and more fun with a friend, and Dog’s big blue suitcase is actually just right for two.

Heart-warming, gently told tale of an unlikely friendship, with exquisite artwork by Rosalind Beardshaw and a poignant message about opening yourself up to new experiences.

Tracey Corderoy is a multi-award-winning author and has written over 70 books for children, including the hugely successful Shifty McGifty series.

Rosalind Beardshaw is the illustrator of My Pet Star, which won the Sainsbury’s Book Award and the Sheffield Baby Book Award.

“A combination of collage, gouache and crayon creates lovely and serene forest scenes in which individual personalities can balance each other in mutual camaraderie. The friendship theme-reminiscent of Frog and Toad or Ernest and Celestine-is quietly subtle and touching, with just the right amount of charm.
