Introducing Limelight Larry

The book is meant to be about Limelight Larry, but Mouse, Elephant, Wolf and other forest animals keep cluttering up the pages. What’s a peacock to do?

A fabulous example of metafiction with a glossy spread reminiscent of Rainbow FishIntroducing Limelight Larry shows us the cost of hogging the spotlight and the joy of community.

Author-Illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson cracks jokes in both text and illustrations in this fun read.

  1. This looks really cute. We had a peacock for awhile that sounds alot like Larry might be. I’ll look for this book so I can compare! Thanks for sharing!
