‘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’

Night and Day
by Herve Tullet
Age Range: Under_5
A highly original book by the award-winning author and illustrator,Hervé Tullet. Night and Day is full of contrasting words, objects and ideas and is an innovative way of exploring opposites and differences. It is ideal for children to play with as each hole reveals a tantalising aspect featured on the paired page. As they look through the hole in each picture and then turn the page, they will discover the difference between a circle and square, full and empty, fast and slow or nothing and everything.
The gentle humour helps them to make important distinctions between different objects and concepts and is perfect for inquisitive children to use again and again. Night and Day in its original French edition was the winner of the prestigious Ragazzi Award at the 1999 Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
