Squish Rabbit … have a glance at that eye catching cover, what you can’t tell from the picture is that it even has a SQUISHY front and back cover! Genius.
Squish is tiny. He wants to be heard, he wants to find friends and this clever picture book follows him on that very journey. I adored the scenes where he meets his friend to be. They stop. They look. They play and are friends for life – because isn’t that just how friendships are formed at that age?!
Katherine Battersby‘s illustrations are set against a white background which immediately renders them clean, clear and crisp. The use of different textures – paper for the tree trunk, material for the tree top and watercolours for the sea adds clever detail. Squish Rabbit himself? Hand drawn in a deceptively simple style which manages to convey many emotions .. take a peek at the “little tantrum” page!
