PRODUCT INFO

From the dynamic team of Pippa Goodhart and Anna Doherty, Best Test is their exciting second instalment all about celebrating our unique talents.

When Bird finds a ripe, red strawberry to peck, Frog wants it too, as well as little Shrew! They decide to organise an assault course to determine who will win the prized ripe fruit. Each of them choose different obstacles. But when Frog discovers he can’t fly like Bird, and Squirrel can’t colour in like Rat, who will win the race?
They soon realise being the BEST is not as simple as you’d think…
With playful rhyming throughout, this energetic picture book encourages children to think about valuing difference and working as a team.
