Longlisted for the UKLA Book Award ages 3-6 | Shu Lin has just started at a new school. She stands alone in the playground and at lunchtime she eats by herself from little boxes of brightly coloured food. What's up with her? says Barney. But when Shu Lin's grandpa comes to school and shows the class his amazing Chinese paintings, everything changes.... With a stunning double-gatefold spread revealing a beautiful Chinese picture, this uplifting story shows the transformative power of art and imagination in developing cultural understanding and empathy.
Shortlisted for the CLiPPA (CLPE Children’s Poetry Award) 2021 | The poems in Matt Goodfellow’s collection range from the silly to the sensitive, and all will resonate with children aged 7 – 11. The CLiPPA judges admired the child’s eye view, the dynamic representations of real-life experiences, and the book’s understanding of a child’s sensibilities.
