Eye spy - something red

I've always planned to play along with the various meme's going around blogland but never have, til now!

Ellieboo's Eye Spy theme - 'Something red' got me in as it means a chance to show off my new favourite book.



This gorgeous book is by Jane Godwin and illustrated by Anna Walker, and while I admit it is the divinely simple illustrations that got me in, the sweet and poignant story is also a winner.


The story is simple - Little Cat catches the bus to school with her big sister, but one day Cat's sister is sick.
What happens next left my two older girls wide-eyed, but I won't spoil it for you.


Suffice to say - it's a kids book - so you are pretty well guaranteed a happy ending.



PS - on a separate note - thanks to all who responded to my last post - I read everything you wrote and plan to respond personally - it's just been crazy busy around here!
I'l also post a composite of some of the comments so you can all enjoy each other's words of wisdom.

Karen, it looks like a gorgeous book (the splashes of red in the illustrations are really lovely).

I was a bit of a bookworm as a child, and want to instill a love of books in my own children. We read every night (and sometimes during the day) and visit the library weekly.
