Originally published in Italy, these Minimobo books are highly clever, visually stunning and creatively expressive picture books.
Published by Walker Books, they provide a great platform for the younger audience. With guidance, these books will encourage children to make up their own stories and endings.
It allows the reader to creatively explore each spread, producing their own narrative, plot and ending. A valuable skill to instil in a younger reader.
The use of white space and only one other colour across each spread is hugely impactful.
Created by Silvia Borando, a visual designer and innovative creator of picture books, these books may appear to be simplistic in format, but are indeed a clever introduction to many areas of Literacy including reading, story making amd imaginative play.
Using only black and white, this visually striking format works on every level.
Black Cat ventures out only during the day. White Cat will only go out at night, but one day they decide to discover each others worlds.
We can’t recommend these books highly enough. Strong imagery, plenty to incite discussion, encourage imaginative story telling and produce creativity among a younger audience.
