This is a lovely story of a boy who one day finds out a new small person has come to stay and be part of his life.
Elmore Green has everything a kid could want: his own bedroom, toys, jelly beans, and the exclusivity of being the funniest, cleverest and most adorable person in the house. When the small new person appears all of this is put at risk. Everybody ask him to be patient because the small person is small, but the truth is that the situation only gets worse as time passes and he grows up.
Luckily one night the small person has the chance to do something nice for Elmore. This will be the first of many good moments the kids will enjoy together. The small person will actually be Albert from now on. Elmore discovers sharing is much better. Orange jelly beans are beyond discussion, though!
Age range: 3 to 6 years old.
