LoveReading View on Present For Freddie Small

Michael Evans is a new talent in the world of picture books and it’s a real feather in his cap that an established author of Nick Butterworth’s calibre has chosen to collaborate.  Michael’s artwork is fresh, child-friendly, and bursting with lovingly observed detail. Painted in sparkling colour, with a soft line and wash technique, his illustrations are both accessible and highly accomplished. It’s a wonderfully satisfying read, full of humour and affection.  The story addresses the important subject of children having difficulty getting to sleep and is a heart-warming tale about the comfort to be had from a special bedtime toy.
