Kitty Crowther is one of our favourites and she has such empathy with her characters and boy do these books ooze ‘character’.
With ‘Wakey-Wakey‘ we instantly engage with the parent/child relationship between Poka and Mia and the fondness which they show to one another.
Many parents will identify with these scenarios that Crowther finds her characters caught up in.
And just when you thought is couldn’t get any more bizarre, in ‘At the Bottom of the Garden‘ we are introduced to Arto, the spider who knits.
This imaginative tale shows how Mia’s caring side shines through as she looks after her new friend Arto who has a fever.
Again, Crowther’s characterisation comes to the fore and you can’t help but have an instant understanding and affinity with these wonderful creatures.
Poka and Mia, have a fond Father/daughter relationship and the way in which Crowther writes, makes it a genuine one, that all parents will recognise.
We are just SO pleased that finally, some of Kitty Crowthers’ work has been translated for English speaking fans and followers.
