Where’s The Pair by Britta Teckentrup (Big Picture Press)

10982113_10153076524640446_8514696764038342151_nWe’ve never been disappointed by Britta Teckentrup‘s work. Always beautifully executed and with a distinctive fine art style that she’s made her own.

This contemporary and more sophisticated take on ‘Snap!’ is designed to test the powers of even the most observant reader and provides subtle clues within the sprightly song-like, rhyming text.

An ingenious way to get younger children to drill down further and literally bore holes into each spread, without missing an square centimetre of detail.

With a fun and upbeat rhyme and sumptuous descriptions to accompany the equally sumptuous illustrations, this is sure to be a family favourite.

“A romp of otters”

“A sloth of brown bears”

“A gang of cool cats”

We would be more than happy to have any of these bright and bold patterns adorn the wall of our favourite room or even made into fabric for a posh frock!

Pick up a copy of Britta’s first spotting book, ‘Odd One Out‘ and make a collection of these quality cloth bound books by Big Picture Press.
