100 First Words
First word books tend to be either informative but unattractive, OR super-stylish but completely un-child-friendly! Unusually, this gorgeous new board book is both informative AND super-stylish. It’s all down to Edward Underwood’s gorgeous artwork, of course, which has an edgy mid-century cool as well as a warmth, which lends the book an appeal that’s hard to achieve.
What the Critics Said
“First word books are surprisingly tricky to get right, all too often sacrificing accessibility for style, or vice versa. This, from homewares designer Underwood, manages to be both aesthetically pleasing and child-friendly.”
