About this deal

As a result, little Colin goes off all the time, and though bad things do sometimes happen, it's definitely worth it in the end.

In fact she worries so much that he is never let out of the house because he might get hurt or sick. If she hadn't wrapped him in cotton then he wouldn't have been mistaken for a snowball, a piece of delicious bread, or a fat white rabbit. I do not find that it is something that a child could really get into, but I would still recommend to give as a gift to those who are getting ready to explore and/or for those who may fear the exploration that their child is preparing to endure.But when Colin (wrapped in cotton) gets mistaken for a snowball and tossed into a freezing river, everything suddenly seems very dangerous. The fox might look a little too scary for a very young reader but adds the right amount of thrill for a 4year old!

But with packaging this nice, and writing this good, Cottonball Colin is the exception that proves the rule. So small that his Mom only agrees to allow him outside into the great big world if she can wrap him in cottonwool. Overprotect your offspring and watch them succumb to the evils of the world MUCH FASTER than if you'd merely let them take their lumps along the way. He is perhaps best known for his much-loved Little Princess series, which has been adapted for TV and is currently showing on Channel 5s Milkshake, and for his collaboration on David Walliams’ best-selling children’s books.I am a teacher but I am also a Mom and I have to admit that, like Colin, my students are probably smarter than me on this one! In fact, if she had just treated him like the rest of his siblings he would have had his life threatened significantly less often. Jeanne has also worked on scripts for TV, including Polly Pocket and The Slow Norris, and a pilot TV series for Dr Xargle. But instead of keeping him safe, the cotton wool attracts the attention of every fierce creature imaginable little boys, ducks, even foxes!

When grandma suggests they wrap him up in cotton before allowing him to venture out on his own, Colin goes along with it to get out of the stifling house.

Cottonball Colin comes to you directly from the loony team of Brits responsible for such books as Misery Moo and the infamous Tadpole's Promise. A sweet story that helps children see why parents can be so protective, and that we may need to prove to our parents over time that we can be independent. His mother refuses to let him play outside with his brothers and sisters unless he is wrapped in a big fluffy ball of cotton wool.

Go through the shelves of your local library and you'll eventually find some didactic tract (nine times out of ten written by a celebrity) that is trying to teach kids this lesson or that lesson with varying degrees of success. Due to his size his mother did not like him adventuring out in case he got hurt, until they came up with a plan and wrapped him all up with cotton wool, so not to get hurt. If you establish a book as an ideal inspirational story for a graduating senior, you are set for life.But what about the picture book that contains a subtle, understated, sly little message, not for children, but for their parents instead? Fun to read, ideal for graduations, not too shabby for kids, and fabulous for overprotective adults, this is a picture book for all types, in all seasons. Looking like nothing so much as a fluffy white sphere, the little mouse promptly gets thrown and chased about, all because of his bright white, easy to spot, covering.
