‘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’

Hans and Matilda
Age Range: Under_5
There once was a little cat called Matilda and a little cat called Hans but they were oh so very different. Matilda was a good, sweet, thoughtful girl while Hans was noisy and naughty. He was always up to no good – squirting people with a water pistol or spraying graffiti. When one night he goes too far by letting the animals out of the zoo Matilda decides that something must be done.
This is a delightful picture book by Japanese author and illustrator Yokococo. There is a lovely twist to the end of the story and the illustrations are both expressive and amusing with bright and colourful images for Matilda and black, white, grey and red for naughty Hans. Hans and Matilda has been shortlisted for the Best New Talent (books) Category: Junior Design Awards 2012.
