A world of your own


  • Description

    If you were creating a world of your own, what would it look like? Would you build your house out of brick – or out of jelly? Would it be on the ground or in a tree? Would your shops sell envelopes and sweets – or shoes for superheroes? Would you ride a train to town, or a dinosaur?

    Taking the reader on an extraordinary visual journey through her imaginative world, award-winning illustrator, Laura Carlin, inspires children to look, draw and make – first from life, and then from the imagination through sharing her own personal thought-processes and drawing techniques.

    Using the narrative of a day – from getting up in the morning, to going to bed at night – Laura shows children how she records every day things and events on paper, and then improves them through her wild and witty imagination – helping children form a visual manifesto of their own world, and enthusing them to find enjoyment and entertainment in drawing and creating with the most everyday objects.
