I was talking to Vicky a teacher friend of mine about my story of Mimi in Itchycoo. Where my animals, situations and landscapes are totally random I worry about - what the point of it is - . She told me the story doesn't need many words. In fact it is great when there aren't, because then the children can stretch their imagination and find their own story.
She lent me this (almost) wordless picture book:
The flower Man, by Mark Lundy.
The foreword :
What happens when the Flower Man steps into a colourless World? Behind every window lies a different story in this unique wordless book. This is a tale of a humble man, full of life, his garden and his neighbours.
Enjoy getting to know the Uninspired Artist, the Bathtub Man, the Thief, the Lover, the Unloved Girl, the Snobs, the Wishing Boy and many others. - and of course the elusive squeakers on every page!
