'A River', written and illustrated by Marc Martin is a wonderful children's book about an imaginary journey through cities, jungles, farms and rainforests.
With minimal text, the gorgeous illustrations tell the story, and they do just that; rich colours and stunning foliage deep in the jungle, fish a plenty under the sea, abstract shapes, patterns and colour on the farm, right through to the vastness of the sea and a solitary, tiny bobbing boat.
They say you shouldn't judge a book by its a cover, but on this occasion, and with a cover as lovely as this, I think it's ok!
