5.0 out of 5 stars I know it as "Rah", but..., 25 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Roar! (Hardcover)
This book is wonderful and life-celebrating, a journey for the imagination, rooted in a solid, everyday world. The relationship between mother and child is tenderly drawn, with an interplay of exuberance and understanding. The mother's restraint has a light touch and wisdom to it, a gentle tact that could be used as a model in parenting classes. The effect is touching and charming.
I gave a copy to my sister, who teaches music to young children, and she allowed her pupils to develop a whole performance based on this book.
The pictures are apparently simple, but with many connecting details which become clear. A lot of care seems to have gone into the design of the book. I believe that it could become a real favourite with young children, especially as it comes with its own, hopefully harmless catchphrase, 'Rah!'.

5.0 out of 5 stars it should be called rah!!!!!!!!!!!!! (like the english ed.), 25 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Roar! (Hardcover)
This is one of the best childrens picture books i've ever read. it's up there with sometimes i like to curl up in a ball, the night kitchen, something else, chris riddell's rabbit and hedgehog books etc. it's very sweet and there are little things you discover in the illustrations each time you go back to it. better than the lord of the rings and harry potter put together.
