Simple but profound

Anyone who has ever found solace in an imaginative world – whether one of words or pictures – should find much to relate to here. Spillman has captured the ability of art to move us and transport us to new places... The illustrations are an excellent fit. Chakravarti seems to be just the right artist for this story – her watercolours beautifully capture the feelings and expressions of the child, while also managing to evoke a strong sense of place.
