A New Green Day

Author: Antoinette Portis Illustrator: Antoinette Portis Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/07/2020

Winner of the English Association Picture Book Awards 2021, non fiction 4-7 Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2021 It's the beginning of a new day, and through a series of enticing riddles, nature invites a little girl to come out and explore. Who scribbles on the sidewalk with glistening ink? Snail! Who's a comma in a long, long sentence of a stream? Tadpole! Active readers will delight in the clever language and striking illustrations. With each page turn, children will solve the riddles about the familiar animals, plants and the weather that the girl in the story encounters outdoors throughout a whole day. 'The power of Portis's poems, and the surprise each page turn allows, lets readers experience familiar moments with awakened senses, offering them nothing less than a new world filled with fresh experiences.' - Publishers Weekly, starred review
