Reviews

Intelligently told and vibrantly illustrated, this is a tale of self-discovery * EYE * I highly recommend this book. It is the reissue of an original hardback, but none the less welcome -if your hardback version has been read as much as it deserves to be, it will have fallen apart a long time ago. * Books for Keeps * Classic celebration of art and creativity. * The School Librarian *
