Reviews of A Rainbow in My Pocket and Will and Nill by Parents in touch:


There are so many questions and thoughts that chase through your mind! Why is the sky blue? Why do the ants queue in such a straight line? Why are some words kind and some words harsh? A series of thoughts run higgledy-piggledy through a child’s mind, capturing the way children flit from one thing to another. Delicate illustrations and captivating text work well together to make the reader think.

Will and Nill by Farhad Hasanzadeh
Will and Nill are cats; Nill is very lazy and just lies dreaming of food, while Will takes his mind off food by playing a game with his friend the sparrow. The, he comes across treasure – a half eaten fish, and tucks in until it is all gone. The he settles back to sleep – but Nill can’t sleep because, as we all know, hungry cats can’t sleep. It’s a simple story, but one that gets you thinking, and the stylish illustrations are a delight.
