Sophy Williams' pastel illustrations are evocative and beautiful with some of the best ones hidden well inside the book. Each of the 20 stories has it's own colour scheme and the book feels substantial and well produced. My children love it.

The cover artwork and illustrations are both glowing and soft. I would be shocked if the medium used to produce the art was not pastel. Because the illustrator has managed to not produce the muddy effect so common with pastel work (well, mine anyway) and instead has created something bright and lovely, I'm impressed and quite stunned by the beauty of the illustrations.
