The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is one of the most original picture books we've seen for a long while. Original both in its striking and colourful illustrations but coupled too with originality in the text, which tells a wonderful story with poetic grace.

It's full of humour and no nursery should be without it.

Synopsis

The Man Who Put Words on Birds by Julian Borra

A highly creative and imaginative journey for children, as young Louis sets out with his little blue friend to find out why there are birds flying over his house with words attached to them.

Gloriously illustrated in acrylic and crayon throughout, the stunning artwork has been photographed rather than scanned in order to highlight the textures of the paint.

About the Author

Julian Borra

Julian Borra was educated at a Catholic College for Boys; which explains an awful lot. That he attended Art College explains a little more. That he has worked in the creative industries of design and advertising for the last twenty years certainly explains the rest. He has spent most of those years amusing himself in various dull meetings by appending various sketchbooks and notepads with non-sense. The Man Who Put Words on Birds is one of those very pieces of non-sense: a small journey to the source of what makes a sentence fly – and why.

Julian is and has been a highly successful advertising copywriter, and that currently he is based at Saatchi and Saatchi in Charlotte Street. He lives in Bayswater with his wife and young son Louis, and he loves Kensington Gardens
