The Grotlyn by Benji Davies
With it’s grimy, dark intrigue, lurking in the shadows. Benji’s made a beautifully rendered and poetic picture book.
I love the victorian scenes and characters, and my kids loved the fact that it was a little scary!
I also really liked… Grumpy Frog by Ed Vere
Which is just brilliantly fun, with lovely loose and expressive characters. Guaranteed a laugh and repeat reads.
