The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a magical story full of wonder and surprise told through a series of delightful jokes. Monday the Penguin has two best friends, Tuesday the teapot and Wednesday, a strange and unusual creature. Together the three friends play through the Spring, Summer and Autumn. The snowy days of winter are beautifully depicted in tactile pages of bumps representing the snow as it falls. But the snow changes everything; Monday’s house is swept away and soon he is buried in the snow. What will happen next?

You may not know that The Tate Gallery in London has a publishing arm and this is one of their children’s books. Other Tate titles we’ve featured to date include At the Seaside and For Just One Day. The production value of each one is absolutely sensational. As a consequence they will be books to be passed down generations and will make the most fabulous gifts.

Synopsis

Monday by Anne Herbauts

Meet Monday. He's a penguin who likes to stay warm. His best friends are Yesterday and Tomorrow. They like playing the piano together and they like spring, summer and autumn. But when winter comes, Monday's house is blown away in a snowstorm. You can feel the snowflakes on the page, and, as the pages grow thinner, poor Monday starts to disappear. What will happen when the snow stops? Monday is an endearing, magical tale for young and old alike from one of Europe's foremost illustrators. Anne Herbauts is the author and illustrator of over 20 children's books. Born in Belgium in 1976 and a graduate of the Brussels Academy of Fine Arts, her distinctive work won her the prestigious Grand Prix de l'Illustration award in 2009. She now divides her time between Belgium and France.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
