Leen van den Berg: The Big Question, illustrated by Kaatje Vermeire
An elephant has a rather big question, and needs help from a parliament full of fun characters to figure it out. Inspired by Aesop's Fables, yet very playful with modern storytelling, this is a thought-provoking addition to any adult or child's library.
The acclaimed Kaatje Vermeire (Maia and What Matters) provides the illustrations, which feature collage of the highest quality. They offer richly detailed doublespreads to absorb little readers.
A surprise ending gives the story a deeper poignancy. Hardback.
