Leon and the Place Between

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

Publisher: Templar

With his friends Leon visits an elaborate magic show, and finds himself quite literally drawn into the action. He finds himself being carried on a magic carpet into another world where, rather like Alice, he discovers a white rabbit, which he takes back to show his friends that anyone can find magic, as long as they believe in it.

Baker-Smith’s illustration uses Victorian-style posters with varied typefaces to tell the above-ground story, with puppet-like protagonists placed in black, purple, gold and starry sets.

As Leon travels to the place between, the text becomes smaller, drawing readers with him.
