Written and illustrated
by Sam Usher
Templar Publishing £6.99
In the midst of the summer holidays, what could be more apt than a picture book which celebrates the excitement to be had from an outdoor adventure on a hot, sunny day?
The third title in Sam Usher's beautifully drawn, seasonal series sees the return of the boy and his grandad, this time setting off to find the perfect picnic spot. The search, in the true spirit of adventure, involves quite a trek in full sunshine with plenty of opportunities, along the way, for discovery and invention. The eventual chosen place reveals an even greater surprise because… someone else has got there first!
The spreads are truly stunning and range from large expanses of deep red and gold, to convey the intense heat of the day, to an intricate montage (spoiler alert!) of life aboard a pirate ship. This is a gorgeous picture book with a story which affirms the power of imagination and the joy of sharing special family moments across the generations.
