‘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 Herve Tullet
Age Range: 6-8
Just imagine a world where everything is an adventure and there’s a surprise around every corner! Whether it is going places, on the sea or in the country, inside the home, shopping, playing, dreams or memories, you can go on an adventure travelling through French author and illustrator Hervé Tullet’s book where every page has something different.
Imagine is a visual and tactile feast. With its bright, bold images in ink, gouache and watercolour, and its die-cut keyholes and letters and numbers together with a fold-out poster, this is a book that can be used in many different ways. One double-page spread features pieces of furniture in browns and reds set on a grid paper background with simple block letters saying, “come inside!,” while next to green silhouettes of steaming teapots are the words “time for tea.”
Tullet takes the notion of simplicity into the realms of complexity as he presents page after page of different objects designed to trigger a child’s imagination.
