LEAVES by Stephen Hogtun (Bloomsbury) is a haunting and beautiful story told from an unusual point of view: the characters in it are trees! The dreamlike art takes us through the seasons, and makes us think about life from a new perspective.
THE LAST SEAWEED PIE by Wenda Shurety, illustrated by Paddy Donnelly (Storyhouse) is about pollution and learning to cooperate – but the imaginative world of the Tree-ple and Sea-ple is so creative and wonderfully illustrated that you might not even notice the message at first!
WHEN I SEE RED by Britta Teckentrup (Prestel) is all about how anger makes us feel, and the vibrant pictures and rhyming words explode across the pages! A beautiful and unusual book that ends with the message that even our worst rages will pass.
IF I WERE KING by Chelsea O’Byrne (Frances Lincoln) is a tale about a boy named Thomas. He wishes he was a king – and wakes up in a castle when his wish comes true. The gorgeous art captures the fun of the story perfectly.
