The Scotsman’s Summer Reading

Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon and Goldilocks and Just the One Bear were both included in The Scotsman’s Summer Reading List.

On The Big Balloon, Jane Sandell writes:

“A sweet story of friendship and understanding written and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Full of interest, bright colours and expressive faces, this is an ideal book to read to young children … As well as enjoying the story, children will like noticing all the extra details. And with its padded cover and sturdy binding it is a book that wil last as well as a story that will endure.”

And of Goldilocks, Sandell writes:

“One of my favourite books of the year so far … a delightfully funny story with a brilliant twist. The stylish collages, expressive type faces and clever use of space on the page combine with text to produce a story to read again and again.”
