Little Seahorse and the Big Question by Freddy McConnell, Rosalind Beardshaw

Little Seahorse and the Big Question by Freddy McConnell, Rosalind Beardshaw


Join Papa and Little One on a very ordinary day, as they explore Little One's big question: "What do we need?"
Together, they decide they need lots of things - clean water, friends, a home - but, above all, they need each other.

This is a lyrical, heart-warming picture book for all families, no matter how they are created and no matter who is in them.


From multi-media journalist and seahorse dad, Freddy McConnell, and award-winning illustrator Rosalind Beardshaw for this picture book adventure.




Freddy McConnell is a writer, multimedia journalist and solo dad by choice. His journey to give birth as a trans man is detailed in 'Seahorse', so-called because male seahorses gestate and birth their young. His 2020 BBC podcast, Pride and Joy, shares the stories of many other LGBTQ+ people starting families today. He lives Kent coast with his three-year-old child. He's expecting his second child in early 2022, an experience he shares in a column for Vice, Dad Bod. This is his first picture book.
