Felix Massie is a London-based animator who won the audience award at the New York International Film Festival, as well as the equivalent festival in the UK, LIAF. This is his first book.
George Pearce has unusually large ears – in fact they’re massive! It’s not the size of his ears that causes him problems though, but what he uses them for. Because George listens - to everyone - and then tries to tailor his opinions to fit in. As readers will quickly understand, that’s not a good strategy. It’s only when he puts his fingers in his ears that he can hear his own voice, the one that really matters. George is a comical character with his huge ears, rosy cheeks and facial expressions ranging from quizzical to perplexed. The message – ‘only one person can make up my mind, and that’s me’ – is important too, especially in an age of seemingly deafening social media. ~ Andrea Reece
Terry Perkins is a normal, happy little boy, until he starts to speak, and his words come out upside down. A doctor has the answer – stand Terry on his head. People can understand him now, but it makes Terry a laughing stock at school and the other children are so mean to him he daydreams of living in space, alone. It’s only when he makes a new friend that Terry’s upside down frown is turned into a smile. Any child who’s ever felt left out or excluded will understand this picture book and it will have a special resonance for children who stammer, are learning to speak a new language or struggle with dyslexia. The stylised stick-figure illustrations suit the story perfectly and this funny undeniably quirky book will give readers a different view of the world. ~ Andrea Reece
