Product description

As any little fan can tell you, picture books aren’t just about great stories. They’re also about wonderful artwork. (The clue is in the name.) So now we’re celebrating illustration in two lovely books with pictures by David Axtell, whose glorious sun-splashed artwork is guaranteed to brighten up your world. Fruits whisks you to the Caribbean for a lively number rhyme full of juicy treats that a hungry little girl must eat – and count! Next it’s off to the African savannah for a lion hunt. Expect rhythmic rhymes, vibrant pictures, amazing animals, mounting suspense – and lions?

  • Multicultural picture books illustrated by David Axtell
  • Read-aloud rhymes with black children in a starring role
  • Figurative artwork in David’s glowing painterly style
  • Classic favourite Fruits won the Smarties Bronze Award
  • David regularly exhibits at the Royal Academy of Arts
