Little Max has little legs, little feet and little steps.

When Rosie, Izzy and Georgi go cubby hunting, little Max wants to go too but he can’t keep up with his friends. Max soon finds himself lost and alone. 

But what else will he find?

Cubby Hunting is a universal story about a young child who isn’t quite tall enough or strong enough just yet but tries desperately to keep up. It's a gentle story that navigates growing up and celebrates that we can all excel in different ways.
