Nursery Rhyme Rainbow

Publisher: Templar

Review

Often the only good thing about a rainy day is the possibility of a rainbow and in this picture book, one young lad abandons his dull painting and dozes off, drifting into a land of nursery rhymes and colour.

Distinctive, crackle-glazed-style illustrations guide readers through a world peopled by characters from classic rhymes, some more difficult to spot than others, and the colours many of them represent - Little Boy Blue, the pea-green boat of the Owl and the Pussycat and others.

An unusual approach to nursery rhymes which will provoke nostalgia in adults and curiosity in children.
