Our Picture Book roundup this month includes A CHILD OF BOOKS, from acclaimed author-illustrator team Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston, in which beautiful prose poetry shows readers the rewards of reading and sharing stories; THE TALE OF KITTY-IN-BOOTS by Beatrix Potter, which was written in 1941 and has only now been brought to life with illustrations by Quentin Blake; and THE JOURNEY, a haunting but important tale of turmoil, tragedy and the strength of family from newcomer Francesca Sanna.
