‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Anne Herbauts
Age Range: 6-8
This is a charming and quirky tale about a little penguin called Monday who likes to stay warm and whose best friends are Yesterday and Tomorrow. They play together and they like spring and autumn. When winter arrives a terrible snow blizzard blows Monday’s house away and he disappears without a trace. Where can he have got to?
This is an unusual creative tale from award-winning Belgium author and illustrator Anne Herbauts. The poetic-like storyline is accompanied by a host of multiple art techniques within its pages. From the watercolour illustrations to the unique die-cut cover and to the raised patterned impressions of the special paper that allows children to feel the snowflakes on the page. As the pages grow thinner, Monday slowly starts to disappear. This is a very tactile book whose innovative illustrations will capture a child’s imagination.
