The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books. Lillington brings the creatures of the ice age to life in dramatic watercolour illustrations. The judges admired his draughtsmanship and found this to be an interesting picture book.

Lovereading4kids's expert reviewer, Julia Eccleshare is the Chair of the Judges of the Klaus Flugge Prize, she said: “We asked the judges to consider technique and artistic ability, and they chose also to take into account the illustrators’ skill at characterisation. The discussion was lively and wide ranging and the final shortlist features exciting and extremely talented illustrators. The Klaus Flugge Prize is very important, the only one to recognise new illustrator talent at this crucial early stage in a career and we look forward to watching all six of the shortlisted illustrators develop.”

Reviews

Lillington's cartoons bring a retro Golden Books charm to the prehistoric setting, while sidebars offer details about each animal's diet, habitat, and more. It's an appealing introduction to eight bygone species and one (ours) that's Still Going!

Young viewers will marvel at the succession of massive ruminants and predators, which Lillington renders in watercolors with reasonable accuracy, if anthropomorphic facial expressions. - Kirkus Reviews
