The insides of books

I borrowed some books from the library today and all of them had some loveliness inside.  I haven’t read them yet, but I am sure the picture books will be devoured and I will browse the non-fiction and hopefully I will love the novel.


From ‘The Bear’s Song’ by Benjamin Chaud.  Look at all the detail here, all of the illustrations in the book are like this.  Makes me want to find things!  In this picture I like the lady exercising in the window.


‘My Father’s Arms are a Boat’ by Stein Erik Lunde and Oyvind Torseter.  Wonderful 3D created illustrations throughout this book using cut out paper.


At last I am at the front of the line for Kate Atkinson’s ‘Life After Life’.  I can’t wait to get stuck into it.


From ‘Josephine’ by Patricia Hruby Powell.  I spotted this book during Multicultural Children’s Book Day, I was immediately drawn to the illustration style and I wasn’t disappointed when I saw the book.  It is thicker than I thought and I can’t wait to read and admire it.  Doesn’t this painting of Josephine Baker just make you want to get up and shimmy!


The inside cover of ‘The Highway Rat’ by Julia Donaldson.  I wonder where all of these eats will feature in the story?


‘The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories.  Volume One’ by HitRecord and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  I have read a few of the tiny stories and this is a great little, no, tiny book.  Full to the tiny brim of wonderful ideas.  One of my favourites is –

‘The sun is such a lonely star.  Whenever he comes out to see his friends, they all disappear.’

Any recommendations?  We read all sorts in our house.  I do like my books on paper though, the ole fashioned way!
