Staff Pick! So says…
If you’re looking to celebrate and explore the living world with young (or any) readers or eco-activists in your life, turn to The Star Whale, a truly beautiful fusion of poetry and visual art. Unusually for a picture book, artist Petr Horáček’s paintings came first, and writer Nicola Davies responded to the poetry of their vivid colours and sweeping shapes. As Davies writes in the title poem:
A picture book you’ll be able to enjoy again and again.
