Once Upon an Ordinary School Day

Publisher: Andersen Press

An ordinary boy goes off to school and everything seems just as ordinary as ever, until a new teacher arrives in class.

The new teacher is not ordinary at all and when he plays the children music and asks them to draw the pictures it inspires, the ordinary boy's imagination is unlocked and his attitude is transformed.

Undoubtedly a message that anyone connected with writing for or the teaching of children will appreciate; this book tries to convey the mystery and excitement of storytelling.

Satoshi Kitamura's illustrations are sublime and, particularly through effective use of colour, convey the joy of the story perhaps even more effectively than the text.
