This warm story of little Copycub and his mother is alive with detail and humour. Splashing through swamps, wandering in search of food, berry-picking, finding honey - Copycub learns everything by copying his mother. As the seasons change, so their behaviour must alter, and when winter comes, Copycub's ability to copy his mother finally saves his life. A beautiful story for bedtime or any time, Copycub combines the magic of fine storytelling with Susan Winter's appealing illustrations, creating a book children will want to linger over, again and again.
