Sarah's Shadow written by Nick Jones illustrated by Si Clark ** Review**
Welcome to the blog tour to celebrate Sarah's Shadow written by Nick Jones and illustrated by Si Clark.
Thanks to Nick Jones and Rachel of Rachel's Random Tours for a copy of the book and a place on the tour.
If you could change something about yourself, would you do it? When Sarah Simpkins is teased about her shadow in the school playground, she finds herself wishing she didn't have one. That night she has the chance to make the wish come true. But will losing her shadow really make her happy?
This is a lovely picture book which is aimed at children aged 5 -7. It has bright, bold illustrations and a great message within the story which questions body image and bullying. As I have found out, it is a super book to share with young children and one they will want to return to. There is a real variety in sentence structure which lends itself to reading aloud and the illustrations and text work beautifully together.
Cat and Mouse say: be careful what you wish for!
