soooo, apparently i’ve become a downer. which is not a shocking realization; more a confirmation of how my ever-declining circumstances have affected my mood and outlook and productivity and now, even my ability to interpret books. because if the intended message of this book is “about searching...

There's not too much I want to say about this book as being a picture book the story is quite condensed. I can say it's a stunning object that I think adults and children alike will love. There is also some mild peril and slight dread I wasn't expecting. Hahaha. It's also perfectly autumnal.

I'm borrowing Hannah's words when I say that this was a bit underwhelming a just "meh". Oh and I also sneakily read this in a bookshop. Find more of my books on Instagram

A poignant little picture book that is just as beautiful inside as it is outside! A real stunner and one that both children and adults will enjoy on many levels!

This was kind of depressing, which is probably why I liked it more than The Fox and The Star. It's a bit about mindfulness and the desire for solitude. It felt more like poetry than a picture book.

Absolutely beautiful cover, and gorgeous illustrations. A somewhat dark tale about the importance of devoting time to the things that really matter.

Not a sequel in story, but perhaps a sequel in tone, the Worm and the Bird is the second stunning children's book by Coralie Bickford-Smith. If you were charmed by the first book, this second one will be better. If anything it surpases the first book not only in art but in the storytelling too. P...

Read at the Foyles bookshop in Southbank. The book is so beautiful and so fast and easy to read (hello picture books, my old friends) you won't be able to put it down before you finish it. The illustrations are amazing and I really wish I were a child who was learning how to read because this wou...

Not so sneakily read this all in Waterstones. Don't think the illustration is really that striking to want to buy a copy for myself, and I feel as if the Fox and the Star was more well crafted in the colour decision making and also played around with how the fox looked more than how the Worm and...

Nice book, well made and the pictures look amazing. The story though is no where near as good as the Fox and the Star, in fact it felt very babyish at times. Also missing are those bright orange colours, a worm just isn't bright enough to stand out. Highlight of the book those was the bird, watch...
