‘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 Helene Druvert
Age Range: 9-11
Acclaimed author and illustrator Hélène Druvert’s clever and intricate laser cuts and stunning illustrations will take the reader on a journey up, up and away through the clouds to explore the massive expanse of what we see when we look out and up – the Sky.
In this large-format fact-filled information book with text by Juliette Einhorn you will explore the atmosphere to look at the planets, stars and beyond and learn about birds, insects and pollination, witness a tornado and an eclipse.
There are plenty of new facts to digest but it is the artwork that is the real star of the show from the different types of clouds, the wind and the weather, and life in the air showing the different species that fly including man-made flying machines such as a zeppelin, hand glider, aeroplanes and a balloon.
An ideal book for children who have an interest in the sky, the weather or space.
Other titles by Druvert and reviewed on the website are Garden Jungle, Paris Up, Up and Away and New York Melody.
