'Lil Sonny Sky book of the week...

The Princess and the Pea adapted and illustrated by Lauren Child and photographed by Polly Borland is beautiful, clever and quirky. It's a combination of illustrations placed in beautiful miniature sets, then photographed, the result is very atmospheric and enchanting.




We took the kids last year to an exhibition of these little sets from this book at the fantastic Manchester City Art Gallery ( which is very family friendly and a favourite place to visit for us!) they were fantastic, the detail was amazing so inspiring , Sky was especially fascinated by how they'd made the little sets. The text is in the fab funny style of Lauren Child so this is a great read as well as lovely to look at!
