Maybe you don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but I do. There are times I may be missing out, but most times, a cover says a lot about the book.
When I saw Hiding Heidi by Fiona Woodcock, I knew I would fall in love with the pages inside. A beautifully illustrated book with textures and a color palette that add to the sweetness of the story. Fiona’s pencil quality along with charcoal, and stamps she has beautifully collaged and brought together create a unique style all of her own. Visually appealing to the young and young at heart.
You will enjoy seeking and finding Heidi, you might also find yourself wishing for Heidi’s wardrobe. Fiona’s writing makes for a perfect picture book, children will want to read it over and over because Heidi is clever at hiding in the most beautiful and lively places.
Heidi’s epiphany comes when she invites her friends to her party, and hides a little too well. Her friend’s have a great time enjoying the party with out her.
A book that teaches a subtle lesson about sharing and taking turns. A great book to add to your library. We are patiently waiting and watching to see what Fiona has in store for her future books. follow her here.
