‘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)

It’s been a long time since a book by Belgian artist Leo Timmers has appeared in English in the UK. This is Gecko Press’ second book following on from the delightful Who’s Driving? (2005).
Bang is an almost wordless picture book that is guaranteed to make children giggle. The stunning illustrations by Timmers are filled with bright colours and quirky detail. One moment of distracted driving causes a chain of hilarious car prangs that result in pandemonium. Timmer cleverly allows the story to build up as each new character enters the scene. Along the way there are a few bizarre twists too and the climax near the end of the book has a page fold-out that produces a feast for the eyes.
