HELLO THERE. WE ARE STILL OPEN AND SAFELY DISPATCHING YOUR ORDERS BUT AS THINGS CONTINUE TO BE UNPREDICTABLE ACROSS THE WORLD WE'RE FINDING THAT DELIVERY IS A LITTLE SLOWER THAN USUAL.

Book of the week / Lola Dutch

Last week over on Facebook and Instagram we talked about me starting a ‘book of the week’ post on the blog. And today’s the day. I'm so excited to start sharing our favourites with you 

The very first picture book I’d love share with you is Lola Dutch by Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright.

Sarah Jane is one of my very favourite illustrators and I’ve followed her for years. We’ve had her prints hanging on our walls since Theo was a baby.

Her work is beautiful.

Lola Dutch came out last month and it’s gorgeous in every way. Lola is a creative little fireball with the biggest imagination. She is always bursting with ideas

Lola spends her days with her animal friends, and tries to pull them each into her wild creative plans. It's adorable to see how her little brain works, and how it's translated onto the page.

Sarah and Kenneth have made it work perfectly. 

The watercolour illustrations are delicate and beautiful. I could stare at them all day long. 

From what I've read Lola Dutch has been ten years in the making - proof that dreams really do come true if you work hard enough for them!

And on the hardback edition there is the most genius surprise inside the dust cover. It's amazing!

It’s perfect for creative kids and is already a definite favourite in our house
