The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books. Lili is an ordinary little girl, except for her fiery hair, which makes it hard to make friends. A story of unexpected courage. Wen Dee’s pencil and crayon style lends itself beautifully to animation and movement as demonstrated by Lili with her fiery red hair. The judges found lots to like in her sensitive, lyrical drawings.

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.”

Synopsis

Lili by Wen Dee Tan

Lili finds it hard to make friends with her fiery red hair, but one day, Lili finds the village children lost in the deep dark woods and her bravery (and hair) leads them all home safely. Lili is a beautiful story of overcoming rejection and being accepted for who you are - something that will resonate with children and adults everywhere.

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.
