Synopsis

What I like most is this pencil. It is red outside and red inside. Its colour comes out like a red ribbon. It's what I like most in the world. Except for...



A little girl tells us about all her favourite things, from her light-up shoes, to hot, steamy chips, to her red pencil. But the girl knows that, even as her feet grow, her plate empties, and her pencil shortens, there's something she'll always love ... and that is what she likes the very, very most.



An intimate ode to the unwavering love a child has for their mother, this tender, lyrical story is brought exquisitely to life by Zhu Cheng-Liang, a recipient of a New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award.
