Marc Martin‘s illustrative style, coupled with his creative storytelling has truly captured our imagination.
His clever use of mixed media and texture make for a pleasingly vibrant read and the anticipation of what lies overleaf, make all of his books irresistible page-turners.
‘A River‘ is true testament to that as we pored over each spread.
As she gently travels through dense forest and across immense open oceans, where else will the river take her?
Wherever it may lead, it’s set to be a rich and varied journey.
From Martin‘s stunning representation of the patchwork fields to the hubbub of the bustling city, each unfurling spread is dramatically different from its predecessor.
Lush, vibrant palettes smattered with a mix of illustrative styles and sumptuous textures won’t fail to please any reader.
And don’t forget to keep an eye out for the boat and our intrepid adventurer as you follow the undulating river.
This beautifully packaged story provides a geographical lesson wrapped up in a selection of breathtaking art.
