The Smeds and the Smoos

Red and blue aliens never mix – until two of them fall in love. A funny rhyme to light up your world, by two shining stars of picture books. The red Smeds dislike the blue Smoos, and the Smoos dislike the Smeds. They both think they have nothing in common, and they hardly ever agree. So when a Smed meets a Smoo and they fall for each other, their families are upset. Will love conquer all in this space story? There might just be a happy ending that’s also very cute indeed…

  • A colourful rhyme from Britain’s top picture book team
  • Julia and Axel are the creators of The Gruffalo and Zog
  • Full of humour and goodwill in a fantastic space setting
  • Conveys a message of tolerance with a light touch
