THE GREAT JOURNEY – Bed Time Story
I love children books. I am the kind of person that can spend hours browsing books in a bookstore. Hours!
And this is how I found this jewel: The great Journey.
The great journey is the story of Red Beak, a little bird that, for the first time, flies to the other side of the world following his bird mates.
He flies over forests and farmlands, above cities and the sea and in his journey he discovers amazing things. Things that you can see with your naked eye and things that need to be discovered with the aid of a magic view-finder: acrobatic ants, a cruise-ship crocodile, factories in the clouds and even a monkey playing the cello!
This is one of these amazing books that parents and children will enjoy together and separately. They will love exploring the book by themselves, creating new stories with all the characters that the magnifier will uncover.
And you will enjoy the book as it is, a design gem illustrated by two tremendous graphic designers and illustrators: Agathe Demois and Vincent Godeau. They studied together at the Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg and have created this unique collaboration as joint authors.
The great Journey, one of those books that you need to have. One of our favorite bedtime stories.
Happy mum of two boys, always looking for the bright side of life.
