A book full of the simple joys of life. All of the things that we sometimes take for granted but they are the treasures of our world. Beautifully illustrated by the always reliable Freya Blackwood and simply written by Danny Parker who spares words so that we can appreciate that simplicity. It is nostalgic in some ways, as I can imagine a parent reading it to their child and thinking, quite wistfully, of memories from their own childhood.
It has a twist in the tail, I mean tale that is not revealed until the very last page. Then you re-read it in a totally different way. It is a very clever piece of trickery that will produce two different viewpoints.
Thoroughly enjoyable, no matter what perspective you read it from. In fact, it is pretty near perfect.
