Tuesday 3rd May
Hello and welcome to the clever-clogs blog. Today we officially had our Kate Greenaway shortlisted books, which meant that we started to read them and judge them on our thoughts. Although we wanted to take our time and review one thing at a time so today we choose to review the illustrations. Here are our thoughts: Puja: Jim by Hiaire Belloc and Mini Grey. The pictures are very affective and are colourful. Although one of the pop-up pictures have sharp claws and can really hurt a little child, who would be reading this book. Charlotte: Ernest by Catherine Rayner These illustrations are a bit rough and un-neat. The colours are boring browns and whites. The moose looks like it was drawn by a child and is very smudged. The illustrations are not intricate and the only background is green graph paper. The story is only about the moose not being able to fit in the book. Illustrations= 3/10 Priyanka: Farther These illustrations are dull but intricate. The images are very neatly put in place and the colours stand out. The pictures look real. They are very detailed, and as if they were hand drawn. The more you look into the book the more colourful and detailed it gets. I thought it was beautifully drawn. Illustrations= 8/10 Poppy: Big Bear Little Brother by Carl Norac I think that the illustrations are beautifully detailed and with them being sketchy it brings life to a wonderfully illustrated book. The illustrator Kristin Oftedal has done a very good job. Illustrations= 8/10 Zara= The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers I think this book is really quite interesting and the pictures really show the emotions of the little girl. The illustrations at first were really small but expressive but then as the book went on, the illustrations got bigger and more expressive. Illustrations= 9/10 Aarthi= Big Bear Little Brother by Carl Norac I think the illustrations are very detailed and sketchy. The expression on the characters shows. I think that the illustrations could be more colourful as now they are black, white and pale colours. Tooth Fairy by Bob Graham I really like illustrations bright and colourful and comic like. I think the illustrations help the reader understand the story. I think the illustrations are very detailed as well. Illustrations= 9 ½ out of 10 Thank you for reading, The Clever-Clogs.
