The Nonsense Show : Eric Carle


Roll up, roll up. Something a new and a little different today and yet at the same time, refreshingly nostalgic and familiar. 

"But that's not possible", I hear you say.

My response is quite simple: Eric Carle. 

I'm sure, like me, you have fond memories of childhood storytimes involving that ubiquitous hungry caterpillar. I loved that book, with all of the holes through it's pages to show what had been eaten. So, imagine how excited I was when I heard there was a new Carle book in the world. 

The Nonsense Show is frankly wonderful. A colourful, enjoyable romp through lots of glossy rhyming pages. I took this with me to share with my friends' kids last week when I went to visit, and can confirm that it's a book which can be enjoyed by children and grown ups together.

  2. I'll have to seek it out for my niece! I loved The Hungry Caterpillar, and it looks like they've retained the gorgeous illustrative style too!

    1. Absolutely - the illustrations are just as colourful and wonderful as one would expect.

  3. I loved The Hungry Caterpillar growing up, and the illustrations in all of his books are just gorgeous. (I used to sell them when I worked in a children's store). I have fond memories of a lot of books from my childhood, particularly Enid Blyton books like The Secret Seven, The Famous Five, The Magical Faraway Tree, and Brer Rabbit. I couldn't get enough of them. I read a lot growing up so I could give you a list a mile long! xx

    1. Oh, the Faraway Tree. I was a definite Enid Blyton kid. Loved her books.
