Sharratt Can Do No Wrong
on 21 April 2008
If you like the split page concept, which has traditionally been used for dressing up style books, i.e. policeman's head with ballerina's body and footballer's knees, type thing, you will love this. Sharratt repeats the success of 'A Cheese and Tomato Spider', which works the same way, and this is none the worse for that.
The thing that will always make Sharratt perennially popular, no matter what he does, is the fine quality of his illustrations and the perennial appeal they have for children anywhere. I have yet to meet a child who doesn't like his work. The drawings are bold and amusing on their own, with this format the child is in charge of creating some fantastic and bizarre creations of their own, which puts them in the driving seat and allows them free rein with their imagination. Highly recommended.
