Yirruwa Yirrilikenuma-langwa (When We Go Walkabout), is a beautiful celebration of indigenous culture, where each picture is a work of art and celebrates the Aboriginal way of passing on knowledge through the traditional stories of their ancestors.
In fairy tales, things will always feel more perfect than in life. The dashing prince will find the fairest maiden for his wife…Well…you might be shocked to hear this, but even fairies fart! (Jennifer Stinson)
Nosy Crow have a podcast in iTunes, it has been there since 2013 but I only discovered it today. The podcast has audio versions of some of the Nosy Crow books which you can read along with it. This reminded me of my childhood when I used to listen to the Storytime Magazine to stories such as, Gobolino the Witches Cat, when I went to bed at night.
The newest two books in the Alphaprints range – Happy Dog & Quirky Bird are a wonderful addition to these touch-and-feel textured prints and fingerprint embossed pictures. These highly creative books are humorous, with pictures that are different to your average hardback book.
To the children out there. Books are a beautiful gift of imagination, knowledge and being lost in worlds where anything is possible. Enjoy this gift, soak it up and let your imagination soar.
One of the first things I thought about when reading this book is that my mum is going to be horrified when she reads my review, she hates the F word…the Fart word…it is one of her least favourite words. But then I realised she also has a sense of humor and she might overlook her least favourite words…maybe.
