It is a lovey story and very focused on a love of books, which is something that we both hope to instill into our child. Therefore, we step aboard, to watch as we embark, to realise the substance and meaning of our route and then the parts that might be included on our travels.

From figurative painting, collage and installation to illustration and award winning picture-books, Oliver Jeffers practice takes many forms. A Child of Books acknowledges the thrill of scary stories, the excitement of adventure narratives and the enchantment of fairy tales. This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally).

The story is delightful, but looking for words from well known classics which form the pictures is also fun (eg words from Shelley's Frankenstein form the monster) A celebration of the imagination that knows no boundaries.
