This is my first attempt at children’s fiction and little did I realise that this was a picture book. However, suffice it to say it is enough to enrapture any child and her imagination. Due to an unintended lapse by Teddy, a teddy bear (what or who else can Teddy be), in not turning off the hose, an entire garden is converted into a teeming, throbbing mass of aquatic life.
The art is exquisite and the curious and weird expressions on the creatures’ faces undoubtedly induces a smile in the reader. I was cackling away myself at the entry of a blue whale. A blue whale! In the garden! At the back of one’s house! Ridiculous, but fantastic
A very humorous and refreshing read!
(Teddy and the Great Flood by Katarina Macurova is published by Windmill Books and will hit the bookshelves on the 15th of August 2021)
