Anne Thompson – A Library Lady – recommends…

Felix After the Rain written and illustrated by Dunja Jogan, translated from Slovenian by Olivia Hellewell (Tiny Owl)

Felix After the Rain is a beautiful book. Wonderful illustrations which encourage the reader to linger combined with a rich text to create something that will comfort and reassure. The translated text by Olivia Hellewell is rich and almost lyrical and this would be lovely to read aloud as the vocabulary works so well with the illustrations. I would highly recommend this for children of all ages and quite probably adults too.
