The bold, brilliantly colored, clever book from the creator of I Am Bat.

When puffin Steve meets puffin Steve, neither can believe it. Surely one of them must be the first Steve, the best Steve, the Stevest of Steves…But is a name really worth fighting over?

Praise for I Am Bat:

"A quirky gem...Old and young alike will have to giggle at the bat's show of speedy adaptability. Excellent visual storytelling aligned with eloquent brevity." —Kirkus

"Novel and funny… A deceptively simple story that packs a subtle message about sharing and altruism. A thoroughly engaging read that is sure to be a hit at storytime." —School Library Journal

Praise For The Steves

"It’s a great read-aloud for two voices... A gentle, subliminal message about friendship and acceptance. Enormous fun." — Kirkus Reviews

"Might prove to be a very handy tool to use with little ones who are fighting with each other." — The New York Journal of Books

"Short, rhythmic sentences with dialogue in different fonts for each Steve make the text easy to follow for independent or shared reading, as well as providing visual cues for a storytime group to act it out. Be ready for kids to dissolve into giggles with this British import and ask for it again and again." — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
