5.0 out of 5 stars I think this is a wonderful concept and I like it very much, 23 July 2009
This review is from: Storyworld (Hardcover)
I pre-ordered this having seen it advertised on Amazon when I was looking at some of John Matthews books on Celtic Mythology and it arrived about a week ago.

The book and cards are housed in a box which itself is a bit like a book in that you open it out and the actual book is on the left side and the cards on the right. When you close it, two magnets (unseen) hold each side together. The book is hardback, well written and the short descriptions on the cards are helpful.

The cards themselves steal the show as the artwork, done by four different artists, is stunning - really stunning.

I know this is aimed at children and the intention is to 'unlock one's imagination' through the art of storytelling but I think this has a great appeal across all ages because it brings out the storyteller in all of us.

For myself, I bought this partly out of curiosity and partly to see if it could help my creative/imaginative juices flow particularly when writer's block sets in. Three days ago I selected a group of cards and after a few minutes had a plot and story developing.

I've also enlarged some of the cards on the printer (the quality of the artwork is was not compromised) and then laminated them because the artwork is so beautiful (sorry repeating myself).

I understand 4 more sets are in the pipeline: Faery World, Quests & Adventures, Animal World and Sea Adventures.

I'm very happy with my purchase.
