The Lovereading4Kids comment

Absolutely fabulous lemurs fly through the air across bold, brightly coloured pages in this exuberant picture book! The littlest lemur worries that he’s not actually good at jumping, but his family remind him of all his talents – which allows for hilarious pictures of him playing the recorder upside down and throwing custard pies – and he’s encouraged to complete an amazing jump. It’s a very funny and reassuring story carried brilliantly through Zehra Hick’s stylish and lively illustrations. Apparently she created them using bamboo, and there’s certainly a wild and jubilant abandon to it all that will transmit to readers. Delightful! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Flying Lemurs by Zehra Hicks

Everyone in the lemur family is good at jumping - even Grandma, whose speciality is being shot from a cannon. Everyone, that is, except the littlest lemur. He just can't do it, no matter how hard he tries. But there are so many jumps to choose from, surely he will manage one, and be able to take his rightful place on stage with the rest of the troupe? Flying Lemurs is a charming, comic story for would-be acrobats everywhere.

Colourful, bold, and bursting with energy, this is visual storytelling at its best from the talented author/illustrator Zehra Hicks. You'll be rooting for the little lemur from the start as he gradually overcomes his fears and finds his true calling in style.
