The Lovereading4Kids comment

An inspirational picture book for children for as they turn each page they can imagine all sorts of unusual things as the wallpapers in the picture book come to life before their eyes and for Wendy, the little girl in the story. The inspiration for Wendy and the Wallpaper Cat comes from the classic wallpaper designs of one of the most well known artists of the Golden Age, Walter Crane. It truly is beautifully illustrated and a completely original bedtime story.

Synopsis

Wendy and the Wallpaper Cat by Jason Hook

Wendy can't sleep, no matter what she tries. She counts sheep, reads books and even turns somersaults - but nothing works. Eventually Wendy's parents take her on holiday to stay at her grandfather's house, and he invites Wendy to stay in whichever room is her favourite. Wendy is amazed to discover interiors covered in wallpapers that come to life, and their sights, sounds and smells fill her head with images and ideas. As she wanders happily from room to room, she finally finds a way to drift off to sleep.

You can read a fascinating piece by the author and illustrator of Wendy and the Wallpaper Cat here.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
