Hello Hello

Hello Hello

Author: Brendan Wenzel Illustrator: Brendan Wenzel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/04/2021

In this brilliant follow up to the Caldecott Honour-winning They All Saw a Cat, bestselling author Brendan Wenzel presents a chain of animals of dazzling variety. Each one is different from the last, yet each is also linked by at least one common trait: some obvious, some more subtle. As colours and patterns mix and mingle, and as paws and snouts meet, each unexpected encounter celebrates the magnificent diversity of our world - and ultimately paints a story of connection. Joyous, rhythmic text and Wenzel's exuberant art encourage readers of all kinds to delight in nature's infinite differences, and to look for - and marvel at - its gorgeous similarities. It all starts with a simple 'Hello.'
