Review:- My three year old loves this book. He asks lots of questions about why the boy is there? Why is is looking for Silence? Why he had to go away? He doesn't ask anything about the colour of their skin or anything like that. And it will stay that way.
I think this is a great book to introduce pre-schoolers and early primary children to different cultures and backgrounds in a fun and easy to understand way. That you can play with anyone, no matter where they come from or what they look like.
The illustrations are great. They fit in with city life, from the busy road to the houses and the down-in-outs. I love the way Joe calls older kids "Biggies" and "Up to no goods".
The ending gives me shivers, the way he says that everything goes silent just for a minute. Also how kind Joe is sharing his sandwich. I just simply love this book.
I would recommend this to anyone with young children, even older ones can learn from it. And I look forward to reading more from Ben Morley.
Thank you to Tamarind Books for producing such amazing books and for sending me this book.
