Titch’s older brother and sister have bigger bikes, louder musical instruments and larger kites. However, it is Titch who had the tiny seed which ‘grew and grew and grew’. The combination of simple language and clear and expressive pictures conveys the essence of children’s worries about growth and sibling rivalry. The message is clearly conveyed that the smallest is not necessarily the least important.
