Halibut Jackson

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

One day Halibut Jackson receives an invitation from the Queen to a party at the palace and starts work on his most ambitious outfit yet, a bejewelled suit of silver and gold, which he thinks will go unnoticed amid the splendours of the palace.

Unfortunately, Halibut doesn’t realise that it is to be a Garden Party... Shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Awards, this warm and enchanting tale is beautifully conceived and executed, with illustrations as colourful and imaginative as one of Halibut’s own suits.

The endpapers artfully depict Halibut’s personal transformation, with the pale pink suit with which he shyly blends into the sunset in the opening pages, being replaced at the end with a bold red and blue one.
