Monday

Publisher: Tate Publishing

Review

Monday is a penguin who likes to stay warm. With his best friends Yesterday and Tomorrow he likes playing the piano together and they like spring, summer and autumn.

When winter comes, Monday's house is blown away in a snowstorm, and his friends go in search of him.

With many tactile elements on the pages, and even a snow-stippled cover, small children can explore the detail of the distinctive illustrations, and the poetic narrative, and wonder at the meaning of the denouement.

An unusual book, typical of its European origin.
