‘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 Peter Cohen
Age Range: Under_5
Boris’s television picture is blurry but the TV repairman tells him that the problem is with his eyesight – not the TV! A trip to the opticians confirms the diagnosis – Boris needs glasses. When he gets his new glasses, he realises that he can now see everything clearly and he decides that he should get a job. He had no idea that there was so much to look at or that Gudrun in the bakery was so pretty!
This is a delightful picture book by Peter Cohen, with comic illustrations by Olof Landström that are both vibrant and full of detail, particularly of Boris’s home and where he works. There is no doubt that children will love this quirky tale.
