If you were creating a world of your own, what would it look like?
Would you build your house out of brick – or out of jelly? Would it
be on the ground or in a tree? Would your shops sell envelopes and
sweets – or shoes for superheroes? Would you ride a train to town,
or a dinosaur? Taking the reader on an extraordinary visual journey
through her imaginative world, award-winning illustrator, Laura
Carlin, inspires children to look, draw and make – first from life,
and then from the imagination through sharing her own personal
thought-processes and drawing techniques. Using the narrative of a
day – from getting up in the morning, to going to bed at night –
Laura shows children how she records every day things and events on
paper, and then improves them through her wild and witty
imagination – helping children form a visual manifesto of their own
world, and enthusing them to find enjoyment and entertainment in
drawing and creating with the most everyday objects.
