What Happens When ...
by Delphine Chedru
Age Range: Under_5
What happens to all the things we lose or let go? A balloon that floats off into the sky? a sock that slips down behind the radiator? Or our shadows when the sun goes down?
French graphic designer Delphine Chedu has created a unique playful book that will encourage children to imagine what happens to things that have disappeared out of sight. In answer to each question posed there is a delightful fold-out page revealing the answer. With some lovely humorous ones such as ‘What happens when my left sock slips behind the radiator…? Why, it has tea with a pair of pants of course! or ‘What happens to my teacher during the summer break…?’ – with the page opening to reveal her in a bikini with her feet stuck in a gold fish bowl with the fish swimming around beside a tent and parasol.
Stylish illustrations in bright primary colours will ensure that What Happens When … will be enjoyed again and again.
