‘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)
Yours and Mine
by Peter Gleibler
Age Range: 6-8
Two friends, a girl and a boy, embark on a fantastic trip as they compare their
imaginary friends in a poem that has been adapted into a picture book. The striking
qualities lie in the stunning surreal illustrations that perfectly match the spirit of the
text. The small figures of the boy and the girl are lost in their enormous and
disproportionate surroundings. The story offers lots of potential for imaginative
discussion between a parent and child. There is a complete version of the poem
on one page at the end of the book.
A thoroughly innovative picture book from Germany full of amazing artistic qualities and revealing different styles and techniques.
