We can’t wait to share yet another stunning wordless picture book with you.
Following feedback from previous posts, we are aware that many struggle with the very idea of a book without words, but for us, this creates all sorts of endless possibilities.
There may not be a rigid storyline or pre-prepared narrative, but this invites the reader to make up their own version of events. Try it, it can be truly liberating!
The story can be open to to interpretation and this can only be a good thing, particularly for extending young children’s minds and imaginations.
This open-ended, philosophical tale is brought to life with stunningly powerful yet muted portraits by Beatriz Martin Vidal and her distinct style of illustration plays a hugely powerful role in this book.
A quirky and unusual picture book which appears to be addressing numerous themes, including migration, family and finding your roots, works across a hugely diverse audience.
With subtle references to birds migrating and only a digital clock to carry you through the story, this book is great for children and adults alike, to explore.
This story without words holds a thousand different meanings and unfurls as you want it to.
You are the narrator to this special read. You determine where this mysterious tale will take you and the destiny of the lead character.
Vidal’s artwork alone is reason to own this book and the limited palette of predominantly warm whites and greys make for truly inviting and dreamlike spreads.
