My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Picture books, regardless of reader-age, are able to give pleasure to pretty much everybody. As they’re often read by adults to children, there’s a subtle acknowledgement of this in the text and few small side-winks to the adult inside them. They appeal to everybody because they have to.
And this is just gorgeous. I couldn’t get enough of it. The artwork is very very lovely. There’s a double page spread involving a sandbox that is laugh out loud brilliant. I can’t wait to share this with the younger members of my family.
