On my bookshelf... Hortense and the Shadow

Hortense and the Shadow is the haunting debut picture book by two very talented sisters, Natalia and Lauren O'Hara.
Editing scripts during the day, but by night they draw and write together, and a fantastic duo it is too!
With beautiful inky illustrations throughout, the book tells the story of Hortense, a brave little girl with a dislike for her shadow.
"Everywhere she went, it went. Everything she did, it did".
But one night in the woods when she comes across some bandits, she soon realises she is better with, than without it, and her shadow saves the day.

A fairytale about light and shadow, you will surely be mesmerized by all the gorgeous wintery touches and decorative architectural details on every page.
A must for your bookshelf... 

Available from Wordery here.
