PRODUCT INFO

Joe’s day is not off to the best start. He is late for school AGAIN! On their dash to beat the bell, Mum is stressed, Baby Poppy is crying, and Joe is missing all the exciting things happening around him as they blur into one. When given a task by his teacher Mr Khan to draw everything he saw on his way to school, Joe decides he must stop time to examine everything he saw and figure out why his sister was crying so much!

Soon, literally, and metaphorically, things become much clearer, as Joe learns to appreciate the importance of taking your time and noticing what is happening around you. A heart-warming tale about slowing down and appreciating the world.
