About the Book

When a little girl sits down at her desk one day to write a story, she struggles to find her inspiration …

Luckily for her there’s a whole host of potential picture-book characters who want to be the star of her story and make their cases convincingly. There’s the magical, proud unicorn with sparkly hooves and a glittery horn. There are the big, burly bears hosting a picnic, the loveable llamas in pyjamas, the stylish sloth, the lion, the penguins, and even a roar-some, claw-some dinosaur …

But, unnoticed by the little girl, an even littler flea is hopping and jumping around, hoping to be the one she chooses to write a story about. “What about me?” it cries.

With all the big characters and commotion, will the flea ever be noticed?

Set in fun, rhyming couplets, What About Me? Said the Flea celebrates the power of imagination, determination, and the good things that come in teeny tiny packages.
