William, Exeter Cathedral School

There is a Tribe of Kids

This is the first Greenaway book I have read this year so I wasn't too sure what to expect. The Greenaway award is about the illustrations and the cover is probably the best of these pictures. The colours and font are aesthetically pleasing with beautiful colours and a vibrant font which stands out. The detail is quite astonishing and you can see how much effort has been put into it.
One of the things I love the most about this book is that it makes feel part of the adventure. The words fit in perfectly with the pictures and it is a book which can absorb you. If there were any distractions around me when I read it I certainly wasn't aware of them.
The style is appealing and sometimes I turn the page and turn my attention to another beautiful illustration. This is a book which fits in well with the criteria of this competition and makes you want to read it again.
The end of this book summons up the majority of the beauty in this book to the last few pages. Overall this is a book with so much personality and character.
