Synopsis

Poka & Mia : Football by Kitty Crowther

This delightful series of picture books expresses the humour, frustrations and profundities of the parent/child relationship through two endearing insects, Poka and Mia. Despite their multiple limbs and cellophane wings, children and adults alike will immediately identify with Poka and Mia and the situations they find themselves in, making these books ideal for children learning to read. Illustrated in the inimitable style of Kitty Crowther, which is at once both dark and sweet, these charming creatures will ingratiate themselves to even the most hardened cynic.

Reviews

Jury chair Larry Lempert said: She's a traditional storyteller. It's her way of telling that takes people between imagination and reality. Mr Lempert described Crowther as, first and foremost, an illustrator and then an author, praising her use of simple materials and tools to illustrate books. In Kitty Crowther we found an artist and storyteller strong in her humanity and sympathy... she follows the weak, she shows ways of life, he said.
