All I said was… is a story about imagination. And how things might not always be the way you think they are. And maybe about the grass not necessarily being greener on the other side of the street.
It might not be a good story to read a 4 year old with an overactive imagination at bedtime. Because like the majority of Morpurgo books, it’s not precisely a cheerful book. Unless you think being a pigeon is a good thing.
The blurb from Amazon says:
Imagination takes wing in this cleverly-crafted story about a boy who becomes a bird! A heart-warming and thrilling read with a powerful message about the power of books and stories. First of Barrington Stoke’s picture book range for all the family with easy-read font.
I confess I’m not really getting the heart warming. At all. You have been warned.
(I am impressed with the easy to read font. There are far too many picture books which use funky fonts for no apparent reason, which must make life very difficult for people with dyslexia. (There are also books using fonts as part of the story, and I don’t have any problem with that.)
