The Lovereading4Kids comment
This wordless picture book will have adults and children utterly captivated by the illustrations throughout the book. When clown finds himself stuffed into a dustbin with other unwanted toys he decides to do something about it. Each time he thinks he’s found someone to love him an adult comes along and throws him out. Eventually though he finds a family who takes him in and who even go back to the dustbin and save the other unwanted toys. It’s a wonderful story of friendship and love. Quentin Blake is probably best known as the illustrator for all Roald Dahl’s books including The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but Quentin is an author as well as an illustrator and his picture books, of which this is one are truly stunning and will bring much laughter and smiles to both parent and child in the nursery at bedtime. Click here to see a selection of these fabulous books all of which will be enjoyed equally by toddlers and by adults!
