The author of this unusual picture book claims that it is both for kids and for adults, and so it is. Pictures in colour of adults on white backgrounds with smaller, ghostly versions of themselves (the inner children) are shown doing all sorts of things that are ‘child-like’, such as pretending they are okay when they’re not, or being silly when they dance, or being afraid or nasty to others, or talking in baby voices when they’re in love. The integrated text, done in pen and ink, adds to the charm, and there is real awareness of relationships in the whole – humour too. This is an original idea, imagined in an original way, and it will appeal to both children and parents.
