Never Ever

Publisher: Child's Play

Children frequently claim that nothing exciting ever happens, and Empson's second Kate Greenaway award-nominated picture book takes this fact and illustrates a series of fantastic adventures a child might imagine (or ignore!). The quirky heroine, clutching her toy rabbit, strides through the landscape with her eyes closed to the amazing things happening around her, from flying to puzzled gorillas, roaring lions and a dragon who swallows her up - in a dense black spread illuminated only by pinprick-white eyes. Eventually she arrives back, and falls asleep in her own bed - or is she?

Ideal for sharing with the youngest readers, the repetitive text is filled with bold colour and ooze movement. Unfortunately the fold-out page would not survive many young hands!
