Book Review | Edie by Sophy Henn

This is the second of Sophy Henn's books I have reviewed (the first being Pom Pom is Super - see the review here). I love the heavy paper pages, the muted colours, the retro style illustrations and the wonderful simple narrative.  The expression on Edie's face on the book cover makes the reader wonder where she is going and, frankly, what is she up to.  And the reader would be right to wonder, for Edie is up to everything!


Helping Dad with the shopping...


Tidying the house...


Doing Grandpa's hair...


And making the house look a bit more... something...


The facial expressions in the illustrations I have picked to illustrate by post show Sophy Henn's talent, too good to be true in the shopping image, really trying hard and persevering to shat that door in the tidying up image, and really thinking hard about Grandpa's new hairdo in the hairdressing image.  And even in the decorating the house image where we can't see her face, we are imagining what Edie is thinking.  I loved this story, and I'm sure we will be looking back on these in the years to come as classic children's picture books.
