This month BfK features Jane Ray’s cover for The Twelve Dancing Princesses. We’re particularly delighted to have the opportunity to use this illustration as it enables us to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Orchard Books - they’re 10 this year! And also to thank them for their help in producing our July cover.
A bright, zingy collection of poems -some sensitive, some alive with perceptive observations and some painting the most succinct word-pictures imaginable. I loved the eight words of sheer magic comparing the daffodils to yellow swans. Now why hadn't I thought of that? The rhyme and rhythm of 'My Gran Visits England' invites accents and a discussion about differences and similarities. A fabulously rich resource.
