What I Like Most

Publisher: Walker Books

A little girl looks out of her window, watching the world go by. This is what she likes most – or is it the apricot jam her grandmother makes in a huge copper pot? Or her fabulous colourful trainers that flash when she walks? But she also loves the changeable river where she plays with her friends, her red pencil – the list is endless!

Still, amongst all these changeable things (the pencil gets shorter with use; the river swells and shallows with the seasons), there’s someone who remains her favourite person in the whole world.

Zhu Cheng-Liang’s watercolours are absolutely out of this world, capturing the warmth of the bond between mother and daughter and the safety and cosiness of home. The girl’s selection of her favourite things are all everyday wonders – shoes, a pencil, jam, chips – and mark the familiar outlines of her young life.

Mary Murphy excels at writing cosy, sweet books which have a huge hug at their heart.
