The Winter Sleepwalker by Joan Aiken & Quentin Blake

My Review

Wow, just wow! This is a really stunningly beautiful book that easily captures and holds the readers attention. Inside are 7 delightful short stories that are extremely imaginative and fabulously written! I loved each of them but my favourite would have to be Catch a Falling World because of it’s funny little outcome! All of the stories are so different from each other, I loved the quirkiness but best of all I loved the illustrations! Quentin Blake’s illustrations are easily recognisable because of his unique style, they are simply beautiful and tell a story all on their own! I’m not really sure what age range this book is aimed at but I would easily recommend it to adults and children alike. I read some of them to my 4 year old and she loved them! I definitely think this is a timeless book from a master story teller that will be read by people for many, many years to come! It’s certainly one that I will treasure – a real keeper!
