Description

A gift book that's a gift book - for very young picture book readers, with a warm Helen Oxenbury feel.

Ivy loves to give gifts, even though she doesn't always give the right present to the right person. (The dog doesn't need glasses! The cat doesn't need a pacifier!)

And Ivy finds that sometimes it's hard to give BACK something you've borrowed and fallen in love with.

But in the end, everyone is matched up with the right present, Ivy gets to keep the thing she likes best, and gives her sister the best gift of all: a big, warm hug!
