The Wall in the Middle of the Book

£11.99

The Wall in the Middle of the Book‘ keeps the ogre out. It protects one side of the book from the other, so that one side is safe. The other side is not safe. There is an ogre who will eat you on that side. Can you see how safe this side is?

Are we convinced? The knight is proud of his side of the book. He stands on his ladder and makes his declarations. We watch. We compare one side of the book to the other through a series of picture sequences.

Scallywag Press has started its publishing career with bravado. Jon Agee’s ‘The Wall in the Middle of the Book‘ is a clever, mature, considerate piece. The matte, white backed images are direct. The naive type characters are laden with meaning. This book is a triumph.

Description

The Wall in the Middle of the Book

Jon Agee

(Scallywag Press)– hardback

‘The Wall in the Middle of the Book’ is a good thing. It keeps the ogre out. It keeps the outside out. Everything on this side of the wall is good. Everything on the other side of the wall is not. Or is it?
