The Fabulous Foskett Family Circus
Publisher: Andersen Press
These particular illustrations were originally created to decorate the walls of a children's hospital wall but a specially commissioned text by long-time collaborate John Yeoman has propelled these colourful characters into a book for all to enjoy.
A simple rhyme introduces each exuberant personality and talks us through their assorted talents and tricks, from Philbert's egg juggling to Uncle Phoenix's firebreathing. There is lots to enjoy here, with something suitably silly on every page. The Foskett family circus is fabulous indeed, and Blake's majestic lines, colours and space steal the show again.
