Mr Leon's Paris (Paperback): Barroux Mr Leon's Paris (Paperback)
Barroux; Translated by Sarah Ardizzone
R166 R122 Discovery Miles 1 220 Save R44 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Paris is beautifully rendered in moody beige, blue and orange in this stylish tale of French taxi driver Mr Leon and his multifarious taxi journeys around the city. His eccentric array of passengers - Jeanette the hairdresser going to Scissor Row, a mummy going to Pyramid Street via Cairo Place - characterise the idiosyncratic city, presented here in loving and stylish detail. Look out for the beautiful end papers, which include a hand-drawn map of Paris's streets: children will enjoy spotting the various locations mentioned in the story. An extraordinary illustrator at his finest. This book contains a new map of Paris drawn by Barroux specially for this edition. REVIEWS "Mr Leon's Paris takes us on a wonderful journey around the more quirky named roads in Paris, while showing many of the gorgeous sights that the city has to offer, which will be fun for young readers to spot. I loved how each passenger is somehow linked to its destination: a mummy wants to go to Pyramid Street and passes the Pyramide du Louvre on its way, Jeannette the hairdresser wants to go to Scissor Row! Mr Leon's Paris is an ode to what makes the city great, from its sights to its people. I particularly liked how it brings to life the French's cultural heritage, bringing elements from its colonial past (North Africa) and overseas territories (Tahiti). The artwork is beautiful, using a palette of colours with a slightly faded effect, and is so full of detail that it will have little readers engrossed. Look out particularly for the map of Paris at the end, which was drawn by Barroux for this edition. This is a wonderfully stylish book which will work as a great introduction to the city for the little globetrotters. I would definitely recommend Mr Leon's Paris if you intend to bring your family to Paris, or simply if you are dreaming to do so!" -- LIBRARY MICE. "This highly original book takes us on an exhilarating ride across the streets of Paris in Mr Leon's taxi. His passengers include all sorts of intriguing people whose names are often linked with the places they are collected from or destined for. This is the source of much verbal entertainment: for example Jeanette the hairdresser goes to Scissor Row and Captain Scott is picked up from Englishman's Street. The illustrations have a surrealist flavour: we have people with elongated bodies and tiny heads and splodges of colour sometimes eccentrically placed. Features in the urban landscapes are fascinatingly detailed: buildings have hundreds of windows, jaunty statues and tiny chimney pots. After thirty years of driving his taxi Mr Leon wants to move on and to visit some of the places after which the streets of Paris he has traversed so often are named. Children will love spotting them in the splendid picture map of Paris on the endpaper - drawn specially for this edition of the book. In short, this is a sophisticated and wonderfully amusing creation which will appeal to people of different ages." -- BOOKS FOR KEEPS

Where's the Elephant? (Paperback): Barroux Where's the Elephant? (Paperback)
Barroux 1
R165 R116 Discovery Miles 1 160 Save R49 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A visionary picture book from the genius of Barroux, which pairs a beautiful wordless storytelling experience with a powerful message. What starts as a game of jungle hide-and-seek quickly turns into something more significant as Barroux's illustrations convey the consequences of deforestation upon the animal kingdom. Barroux adopts the familiar `Where's Wally?' search-and-find format to introduce young readers to environmental issues, but as the forest begins to disappear, elephant becomes easier to spot. Where's the Elephant? is a deeply poignant read remniscent of Benji Davies's The Storm Whale and is devastating in its simplicity. Children will be captivated by Barroux's unique illustration style and the book is designed to encourage parent and child discussion. Recommended by Mumsnet, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Also longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award 2016 and Highly Commended Best Children's Picture Book in the Junior Design Awards (2015). Look out for Barroux's latest masterpiece, Where's the Starfish? Barroux's books include Uncle John and the Giant Cherry Tree, which won him the 2005 Enfantaisie Award, and the extraordinary Line of Fire, Diary of An Unknown Soldier which has received widespread critical acclaim. In 2015 Barroux won the first Parents, Babies, a Book competition for his work Chuut! which will be given to every newborn baby in the north of France. Where's the Elephant? won Silver in the Prima Baby and Pregnancy Awards and has been longlisted for the Kate Greenway Medal 2016.

Barroux tackles ocean pollution in the stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Where's the Elephant? - recommended by The Guardian, Sunday Times and The Sun. Find the whale, the clownfish and the starfish on every page - until the piles of rubbish start to make it much too difficult. Both a Where's Wally-style spotting game and a striking work of art, this almost wordless tale puts the power back in the hands (or fins) of the natural world, with a boldly beautiful twist ending. With an insight and warmth comparable to Frann Preston-Gannon's The Journey Home, Barroux has created an astoundingly powerful modern classic that promises to be remembered for generations to come. The perfect way to introduce the topic of the environment to children. Barroux's books include Uncle John and the Giant Cherry Tree, which won him the 2005 Enfantaisie Award, and the extraordinary Line of Fire, Diary of An Unknown Soldier which has received widespread critical acclaim. In 2015 Barroux won the first Parents, Babies, a Book competition for his work Chuut! which will be given to every newborn baby in the north of France. His book Where's the Elephant? has been longlisted for the Kate Greenway Medal 2016.

Alpha Coulibaly is emblematic of the refugee crisis today - just one of millions on the move, at the mercy of people traffickers, endlessly frustrated, endangered and exploited as he attempts to rejoin his family, already in Europe. With a visa, Alpha's journey would take a matter of hours; without one he is adrift for eighteen months. Along the way he meets an unforgettable cast of characters, each one giving another human face to the crisis. The book is presented in graphic novel format, with artwork created in cheap felt-tip pen and wash, materials Alpha himself might be able to access.
