A brilliantly funny and brightly colourful story perfect for Steves everywhere.
When Steve meets Steve, neither can believe it. Surely one of them must be the first Steve, the best Steve, the Stevest Steve . . . The claims of each puffin become sillier and sillier as the argument descends into name-calling – until both Steves realize there’s really no need to fall out over a name.
The feuding puffins perfectly reflect the sort of silly arguments children have – and The Steves shows just how pointless they are. The bold, brilliantly coloured, graphic illustrations will have you laughing out loud in this glorious book from Morag Hood, creator of the hilarious Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, Aalfred and Aalbert and author of Sophie Johnson: Unicorn Expert.

Imogen Russell Williams Guardian
Cleverly capturing the dynamics of childhood arguments and rivalries, Hood's brilliant graphic illustrations are an absolute stand out.
The bold and inventive use of colour, eye-catching designs and a story full of wisdom, dry humour and a child’s eye view of the world, are guaranteed to win the hearts of readers young and old
