Yet another stunning offering from French author/illustrator Olivier Tallec, with unbeatable characterisation and a fabulously creative and highly unusual orientation.
With stark white backgrounds each offending character pops out of the page, almost reminiscent of a police line-up.
In this snappy ‘Who Done It?’ a short, simple often quirky, question adorns the top left of each landscape spread.
The eclectic mix of characters with their amusing and absolutely impeccable facial expressions makes for a fun and engaging read.
With only the clue in each question, the reader is invited to spot ‘whodunnit’ on each landscape double page spread.
Tallec has created a clever approach to introducing a younger audience to early concepts like facial expressions, body language and positioning, as a prompt to find the answer in each line-up.
This ‘search and find’ interactive book will get children talking and deducing their own answer from the clues provided. But beware, the clues are not always clear-cut, so it really makes the reader delve deeper into the illustrations provided.
