Bloom is a story of finding love in small things!
We’re delighted that Bloom has been featured the Guardian’s roundup of the best new picture books out now! It wonderful to see Robyn Wilson-Owen’s beautiful illustration being featured so prominently as part of the article. Read Imogen Russell Williams’ fantastic review below.
Warm, consoling, funny and sad, this month’s picture books offer something for every mood. From Anne Booth and Robyn Wilson-Owen, Bloom (Tiny Owl) is a story of hope, persistence and finding love in small things. Every day, a little girl speaks to a beautiful flower on her way to school, telling it how much she loves it, until the possessive gardener sends her away. Unable to understand why the flower then closes, he tries to make it bloom again – but only when he asks the girl’s advice will the flower again share its beauty. Wilson-Owen’s delicate illustrations are the perfect complement to Booth’s poetic text, with echoes of The Selfish Giant.
