Voices in the Park, by Anthony Browne, published by Doubleday, is one of Lil's favourite Anthony Brown books (this being the other one...future book of the week!)
Four very different people enter the Park, and through their eyes and the amazing illustrations and use of type, we see four different versions of a walk in the park.
It's such a clever book, the story moves from one voice to another with their personality's reflected in the changing seasons and surrealistic (...is that a word? it is now!!) landscape and beautiful detailed illustrations.
It's one of those books that every time we read it we notice something new, a crocodiles shadow behind a tree, a burning bush, a gorilla on the top of the flats! Which makes it a read and read again book without it loosing the magic of the first time read.
Our book is signed which makes it extra special!
I found out that Voices in The Park is a re-make of A walk in the park by Anthony Browne written twenty years ago, also Anthony Browne is a Yorkshire lad! born in Sheffield! home grown talent!
It's a fab read together book and inspires lots of interaction, questions and chat, perfect for a bed time read.
