Back to my Christmas book list if that's OK with you?
Are you acquainted with Gilbert Legrand's work?
He's a genius. A quick look at this book cover and you just know it's gonna be fun...
Le Grand Show des Petites Choses, published by Editions Sarbacane, will introduce you to an amazing line-up of everyday "characters" brought to life by this French illustrator /sculptor's marvellous imagination. If you've been following Kickcan & Conkers for a while you"ll know that this is everything I love - extraordinary from ordinary, new from old (the 3 Rs!),poetry without words. I'll be buying this for my five year old boy Miles but it's definitely going to be a family favourite.
Found thanks to the excellent La Soupe de L'Espace
