I’ll Never Let You Go

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Faced with a new, vast and unknown world, the youngest readers are always in need of reassurance. Prasadam-Halls' latest picture book gives the message any carer will want to ensure their young charge keeps constantly in mind that they will be there for them - whatever happens.

Peopled with different stylised animal images of an adult and youngster, each of Brown's clear, bright spreads reinforces this message, which remains constant - whether the young animal is happy, sad, behaving well or misbehaving.

Backgrounds are simple, undemanding and child-friendly, with unthreatening and humorous images of animals that resemble soft toys. The situations where the young animals are placed are familiar, and skilfully address the common fears which worry the youngest readers.
