    1 thought on “Little Elliot, Big Family

    1. “Elliot wondered what it would be like to have 147 cousins. Or even just one.”The new addition to the Elliot series is just as adorable and wonderful as the first–and this one packs a huge emotional wallop. Elliot’s best friend Mouse goes off to his family reunion, where he will celebrate with his “parents, grandparents, 15 brothers, 19 sisters, 25 aunts, 27 uncles, and 147 cousins.” Left alone, Elliot begins to walk around the city, where it seems like everyone except him is having [...]

    2. Elliot and Mouse are still room-mates in the city, but Mouse has a big family reunion coming up, so Elliot makes plans to do things on his own for the day.

Again, Mr. Curato manages to tell a great tale of friendship and family who isn't blood, but belong just the same. Also a good reminder for adults and [...]

    3. Рисунките са майсторски - сами по себе си красиви и детайлни, за дълго взиране и обсъждане, но и умело разказващи, с много смени в настроението и ъгъла, с внимателно обмислена роля в цялостната история - някъде по-просторни и монотонни, другаде по-пищни и динамични. Страшно ми [...]

    4. Безкрайно нежна, мила, добра книжка - трогателна история, емоционална, разкошни внушителни картинки, сладурска, романтична, а героите са такива душички!! Много, много ми хареса и благодаря на Стефан, че насочи вниманието ми! Прекрасна изненада на българския пазар! Препоръчва [...]

    5. Wonderful! We love Little Elliot. A sweet story of family both the family you're born into and who becomes your family. Mouse is going to his family reunion with hundreds of relatives. Elliot walks around the city and sees moms, dads, sisters, brothers, uncles and grandmothers and becomes quite sad. He goes to a movie and is alone in the theatre and he misses mouse terribly, then he hears his name and it's Mouse. Mouse tells Elliot he's part of Mouse's family.

    6. These Little Elliot titles seem like they should be just too sweet and not quite work. But instead, they are absolutely sweet and completely capture the reader. No overly sugary after taste. Just big breath, full heart moments. Well done Mike Curato, you have something amazing figured out.

    10. Elliot's friend, Mouse, went to his very large mouse family reunion, leaving Elliot home alone. Elliot went for a walk in the city, noticing many different families together. He felt lonely.

    13. Adorable illustrations. Easy, humorous narrative. The loveliest thing about this impressive little book is the magnificent, intentional display of diverse human families in a story starring an polka-dotted elephant who yearns for a family.

    14. At first, this was a sad story so I wasn't sure how it would play out. The ending was a perfect, heart warming story!

    16. I adored Little Elliot, Big City last year, and was absolutely delighted when I realized that author/illustrator Mike Curato had another book coming out so soon. Curato's follow-up to his debut hit has just as much heart and charm as one would expect from a story about our favorite polka-dotted elephant. Though Elliot has continued his wonderful friendship with Mouse, his desire for a family sends him across the big city, trying to figure out where he belongs.Readers will definitely love Elliot' [...]

    17. Originally published on my blog, Nine Pages.This is the second Little Elliot book by Curato, the first being Little Elliot, Big City. I haven’t read Little Elliot, Big City, but I went looking for the illustrations after falling in love with the illustrations in Little Elliot, Big Family and I think that Curato’s art has improved even between these two books, so we should keep a close watch on this man, I think. The illustrations in this book are beautiful, saturated, poignant—oh so poigna [...]

    18. In many respects, I can relate to Little Elliot. He and his friend Mouse enjoy doing many things together, but while Mouse heads off to a family reunion with his many relatives, Little Elliot stays behind, and decides to amuse himself. All around him, he sees various families spending time together. Although he tries to make the best of things--after all, sometimes being alone gives someone time to reflect on things and feel comfortable with him/herself--he starts feeling incredibly sad while wa [...]

    19. Mike Curato's beautiful illustrations return, this time with pint-sized details. Elephant's friend Mouse leaves for a pig family reunion, leaving Elephant to spend the day by himself contemplating his lack of family, when Mouse returns for him. Don't miss the title page, where you see mice setting up for a family reunion with seats made out of spools and toy blocks and bottle caps serving as plates. Elephant's independence makes you think he's an adult, but he's just a baby as portrayed by his r [...]

    20. Fantastic! Not that I expected anything less. Full review to come.---With Mouse away at a big family reunion, Elliot decides to take a walk in the city where he sees all kind of families. The more families he sees, the more Elliot wonders what it means to be on his own. But as Elliot soon learns, families can come in all shapes and sizes.

    22. A picture book with a huge heart. Little Elliot has to be one of the most endearing and adorable characters in picture book history. Little Elliot first came on the #PB scene in 2014 in Little Elliot, Big City and now he stars in this one.Elliot's friend, Mouse worries that there will not be enough food at his family reunion for his very large family but he heads to it hoping for the best. While Mouse is away, Elliot goes for a walk enjoying the sights of different families he sees along his wal [...]

Elliot's friend Mouse goes off to meet is multiple relatives, and while wandering around the city all alone, Elliot becomes forlorn seeing everyone around him with their loved ones.

    24. Curato continues the magic with Little Elliot, Big Family. Whether you know Elliot and Mouse or they are new to you, they will entertain as they explore a winter day in the city. With Mouse off to a family reunion, Elliot walks around the city, seeing families at their best (mothers and sons, brothers playing, fathers and daughters, sisters, grandmothers and babies, uncles, and cousinsfeeling lonely and wondering what Mouse’s life must be like. Cold and chilled, Elliot goes to a movie theater [...]

    25. Another heartwarming story about Little Elliot. This time the theme is about good friends. Little Elliot is lonely when Mouse goes to a family reunion. Curato's 1940s-style illustrations are vivid with detail and beautifully capture Little Elliot's loneliness while observing others with their family. The double page spread of Little Elliot alone in a huge empty movie theater is powerful and the following pages when he sees the elephant family on the screen and sheds a tear will definitely pull o [...]

    26. This is such a strange book. Apparently it's part of a series, but I never read the first book, so I was lost. Little Elliot, who is small and adorable, and weirdly childlike, somehow lives all by himself in a big house. His best (and only?) friend is a mouse. When mouse heads off to a family reunion, Elliot realizes how alone he is in the big city (which is randomly also populated with regular people). Mouse finds Elliot walking alone on the snowy street and invites him to the reunion. it takes [...]
