Books & Zines XXXI : The 5 Misfits

Another book by, Beatrice Alemagna for the #booksandzinesseries in this the characters are inventively charming as is their wonky home. Having felt like a misfit myself, especially as a kid the five main characters are relatable as I suspect they are for others too.

The 5 Misfits, by Beatrice Alemagna. Published by Topipittori, 2014. This English edition published by Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, London 2015.

Books & Zines XXX : Mr Huff

We all feel worried from time-to-time and sometimes that feeling grows, different to the blues it can be harder to describe. Today’s #booksandzinesseries explores that feeling throughout a little boy's day. Illustrated in Anna Walker’s tender mixed-media style and like all of Anna’s books, it’s an absolute delight. 

Mr Huff, by Anna Walker. Published by Penguin Random House Australia, 2015.

I was lucky to get my copy signed. Thanks, Anna!
