Are You Sitting Comfortably?

Are You Sitting Comfortably?
Written & illustrated by Leigh Hodgkinson
Bloomsbury £11.99
ISBN: 978-1408864821

As we so often do, the hero of this story just wants somewhere comfortable and quiet to be able to sit and read - somewhere to snuggle up and lose himself in a book - not somewhere that is stinky or too hot, not somewhere disturbed by loud hooting and not somewhere with a monster. Leigh Hodgkinson's work always impresses and this is no exception. Very clever use of colour, pattern, shape and texture in the collage illustrations complement each setting perfectly. The gentle, quirky, rhyming text can be easily read and the message comes across loud and clear in this beautifully illustrated picture book for young children.
William White
