Inside the Suitcase
by Clotilde Perrin
Age Range: 6-8
A way behind the hills there is a charming little house where a young boy is packing a suitcase. But what is inside the suitcase? This cleverly conceived novelty picture book by French writer and artist Clotilde Perrin, author of the international life-the-flaps bestseller Inside the Villains, is full of mystery and puzzles. An enchanting and sophisticated book, translated by Daniel Hahn, it has 35 lift-the-flaps that will take the reader on a magical journey full of twists and turns where the protagonist faces obstacles and decisions to make that will lead to new adventures and finally help him to return home.
The rich illustrations are exquisite and the paper engineering carefully crafted to house secrets within secrets which really captures the imagination and has similarities to Perrin’s other masterly lift-the-flap title The House of Madam M, also a tale of exploration and mystery.
