Twenty Questions 

Mac Barnett

Waterstones Says

Award-winning creators Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson tap deep into childhood curiosity with a mind-tickling ode to the open-ended.

Not all questions have answers. Some have more than one answer. And others have endless answers, unfolding out to the edges of the world. In this spare yet expansive narrative, acclaimed author Mac Barnett poses twenty questions both playful and profound. Some make us giggle. Others challenge our assumptions. The result is a quirky, wandering exploration of where the best questions lead – to stories. Intriguing, richly interactive, and brought to vivid life by, Caldecott Honor Artist, Christian Robinson’s bright and whimsical illustrations, Twenty Questions is a charming invitation to speculate without limits and know no bounds.

The Looking Book: Get Inspired – See the World Like an Artist! 

Lucia Vinti 

Waterstones Says

Look up! Look down! Look around you! The world around is full of exciting things… The Looking Book is a beautiful creative activity book that will encourage children to appreciate their surroundings and develop their drawing, writing and photography skills.

Look up! Look down! Look around you! This creative activity book for children aged 7+ will encourage drawing, painting, writing and creativity. 

The world around us is full of exciting things – people, places, shapes, patterns, colours – but so much of it passes us by. Changing the way that we look can help us see more of these great things that we usually take for granted, and notice things that can make us smile. Maybe you’ll see a particularly pretty puddle, a building with eyes and a mouth, a cloud that looks like a dog or a dog that looks like a cloud!

This book will help you look closer at everything around you and to record your observations through drawing, writing and photography.

The best way to use this book is to take it out and about with you, and complete the pages that work with your surroundings. It’s full of space to draw, write and stick things in and activities to complete, as well as information about artists that you may not already know. It shows that anyone can be creative and that creativity and inspiration are all around us. The book not only encourages children to create like artists but also encourages them to appreciate their surroundings.

As Paul Smith says, "You can find inspiration in anything and if you can't then look again".
