A charming book of opposites from young children

Capsicum, Capsi go

Toby Morris

Published by Beatnik Publishing, RRP $19.99

With a simple amusing rhyming story, Capsicum Capsi Go is designed to appeal to 0-3 year olds and encourages reading aloud between kids and grownups.
Fun and textural illustrations from the talented Toby Morris engage and entertain young readers.

Learn opposites as Capsi adventures slow and fast, near and far, through night and day, and even when he sinks and swims.

Toby Morris is an illustrator, designer, art director and comic artist recently returned to New Zealand after nine years of living and working in Melbourne and Amsterdam.
