5.0 out of 5 stars My very favourite picturebook of 2013!, 28 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Cheese Belongs to You! (Hardcover)
My stand-out favourite picturebook this year is Cheese Belongs to You, by Alexis Deacon and Viviane Schwartz. It's a really simple book, that explains that This is Rat Law: CHEESE BELONGS TO YOU. But what if there's a bigger rat? Or a stronger rat? Or a faster rat? Then the cheese belongs to them. The calibre of rat keeps on escalating - but who will get the cheese in the end?

The text and pictures combine to make an erratic, messy marvel of a picture book. It's one that looks good, reads well, is fun, and um, not overly long. (You know the sinking feeling you get at the kids' bedtime, when you're dying for a cup of tea, and they get out a rubbish, over-wordy picture book tome!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Prestige cheese flavoured picture book., 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cheese Belongs to You! (Paperback)
An acquIntance exclaimed in horror when she first encountered this book, for there is a 'reality' in the depiction of the red-eyed, scavenging, collegial nature of the characters that is rare in children's books. Alexia Deacon is unique in avoiding saccharin interpretations of animals and children's characters, without repelling. He draws in the reader with a directness, that the story telling, through empathic pictures, does the work. Superb and special.

This review is from: Cheese Belongs to You! (Hardcover)
Amusing, entertaining, anarchic, and a pretty fair reflection of what goes on outside the front door.
