Emma Perry, founder of My Book Corner, selects her Best Book(s) of 2017…
OK, so I really, really couldn’t stick to just one. I narrowed it down to *cough* 3. And that was tricky. Very tricky.
First up, The Gritterman from Orlando Weeks. I love the gentle, quietly evocative portrayal of an everyday hero. Wonderful narrative, and jaw droppingly exquisite illustrations.
Next would have to be Witchfairy from Brigitte Minne and Carll Cneut. I adore the unique style of Cneut’s illustrations and the feisty character Minne has created.
And my final selection is Jabari Jumps from Gaia Cornwall. Cornwall really gets into the mindset of a young child – that fear when faced with doing something new for the first time.
