Charley C, Chobham Academy Book Group

There is a Tribe of Kids

While they were not what I originally expected, these drawings told a tale which needed very few words. Throughout this book was a pattern of colour, dots and patches free of colour which formed clear images. The fact that each image is a representative of a collective noun is beautiful. The portrayal of each individual illustration is exquisite, symbolic of both loneliness and belonging. It is clear that the boy is continuously trying to find where he belongs and turns to animals to show him where he fits in. You can see the emotions spread throughout the characters with how the illustrator concentrated the colours around the scenery. In summary, all pictures were drawn immaculately, both in quality and to provide a sense of deep belonging. Perfect!
