A story with a difference, from Mick Inkpen,
This review is from: Nothing (Paperback)
which is, generally, quite a change in direction from the creator of `Kipper'!
Initially about the sadness of lost identity (tissues required!), acceptance of one`s predicament and, finally, the joy of re-discovery!
A delightful, longer than average book, with the most superb illustrations.
28 shiny high quality pages, in the popular 2-page spread format, culminating in fold out pages of the revamped `Nothing'.
From back cover:-
`A little creature lies in the attic, alone and forgotten. It cannot even remember its own name.
One day the attic door is flung open....
And so begins Nothing's search to discover who he really is.'
Example of text:-
`A new baby is on the way.
The family are moving out of Number 47 to a bigger house round the corner.
The cat has gone missing.
But everything else is packed and ready to go.
Nothing has been left behind.......'
