The illustrations convey high artistic design. Traces of newspaper print, corrugated cardboard, tissue paper, painted and crayoned illustrations, mesh, string and print text samples create a very layered, textured effect. The work on each page is outstanding as an individual piece and is a pleasure to contemplate. The fragmented story style, open for interpretation, in some way enables the artwork to take the lead. Overall production is high with a well-chosen font. An interesting, creative and unusual book.
