The Lovereading4Kids comment
Super simple, super stylish, this book proves that picture books don’t need words to tell a story, make you think, or make you laugh. A little boy paints a white wall bright pink with a roller and as the paint goes on, a row of birds are revealed. Turn the page and you can see them fly away. He starts again with bright blue paint, and reveals a shoal of fish, but then they swim off too. On he goes, through green, grey, yellow and purple, each time revealing an animal in the paint, until finally, a puppy emerges from the orange, and the two run off to play together! A celebration of the unexpected and of persistence, this is a clever and immensely appealing book. ~ Andrea Reece
The White Book by Silvia Borando, Elisabetta Pica, Lorenzo Clerici
A stylish and fresh wordless picture book, this original story about imaginative play brims with visual humour, bold colours, and a parade of cheeky animals! A little boy stands in front of the whitest of white walls. He readies his brush ...and begins to paint. First off, a coat of pink - but wait, what's that? The painted wall reveals six birdies, perched on a branch! Then he tries the blue paint and ...yes! It's happened again! Fourteen little fish emerge, swimming in the blue. Yellow, grey, green and purple - there's lots of surprise in store for our little painter...
Smart visual storytelling and bold graphic art give this book a unique look and feel.
. For the enlightened parent, who doesn't see words as a must, The White Book should spark a great deal of discussion with their child and this interaction alone will make the book a great choice. The Book Bag You could spin your own surreal narration for a baby or leave contented toddlers to turn The White Book's beautiful, mute pages by themselves, mercifully unsupervised. The Daily Telegraph With its bold splashes of rainbow colours and a wordless tale told through illustrations only, every picture tells a story in this delightful, fun and imaginative picture book. Lancashire Evening Post ...this stylish picture book needs no words to tell its story. The graphics are simple - uncluttered yet masterly lines, a bold simple palette. Books for Keeps A charming wordless book, perfect for non readers and budding artists. Anorak Magazine A picturebook which celebrates and encourages creativity in its viewers (of any age) with such true playfulness and originality is rare, and one to be treasured. The School Librarian
