Colin is the smallest of his ten brothers and sisters and oh, how his mother worries about him! She won’t let him run and play. She insists that Colin sit quietly indoors — until Grandma suggests wrapping him up tight in cotton.
But not even cotton can protect Colin when he is finally allowed out into the world...
This clever tale about growing up and letting go will delight and entertain readers of all ages.
