Anna had a dozen cousins
All of them were boys.

What's life like for one little girl with TWELVE male cousins? Not easy! "They read her secret diary. They used up all her paint. They put a lizard in her hat to see if she would faint." Loaded with infectious humor, this rollicking, rhyming picture book features a happy heroine who adores her big, boisterous boy family.

His debut picture book Can You See Sassoon?

Sam has recently relocated from Chew Magna, near Bristol, to Windsor, near the Queen. A Dozen Cousins is his second picture book. Visit Sam online at samusher.com

Review:

“Anna’s 12 cousins are mischievous young boys who cheerfully target her with their pranks. As the rhyming text reveals, 'Her skirt became a teepee, / her bear, a wrecking ball. / They launched a rocket into space. / The astronaut? Her doll.' Even the boys’ occasional hugs put them in the perfect position for dropping ice down her back. Is she upset? Hardly. Resourceful Anna often sees what’s coming next and sometimes even turns the tables on the boys. Short, amusing verses create a narrative structure for the ongoing tomfoolery and ultimate camaraderie in this lively picture book. Ink drawings with color washes portray unflappable Anna and her multicultural group of cousins with energy and warmth. The many close-ups of chaotic horseplay give way to a calmer scene near the end, when the arrival of an ice cream truck brings a welcome truce. A witty picture book that reads aloud well.” —Booklist
