A strikingly illustrated picture book with a strong anti-bullying message, from a father-and-son team. Based on the author's childhood experience, Say Hello tells the poignant story of a boy who is left out and all alone, while other children play happily together. Michael Foreman's beautifully spare illustrations perfectly complement the story's underlying message: When someone's feeling left out, low, it doesn't take much to say ...'Hello!'
Jack Foreman originally wrote this poem, based on a real childhood experience, when he was ten years old. It wasn't until many years later that he showed it to his father, and it became the picture book, Say Hello. Jack is currently studying art history at Nottingham University.
