Uncle Marlow's Machine tackles the tricky subject of renewable energy, and allows children to imagine ways they can help make a difference by making informed decisions now and into the future. My girls and I enjoyed this book very much, and thank you for another special addition to our home library.
A beautiful book which my grand daughter loves.
Beautiful book love the story line and so do my grandchildren
A beautiful book.
Very clever to get the message across to children when they are feeling anxious or unhappy.
Very good Thankyou
Everyone that has looked at the books has said "What beautiful books" my grandchildren love the books, and I love reading them to them so they learn how to treat the earth well.
The books were purchased for a little one not yet born. They look amazing and we can't wait for the time they are read to the baby and loved by her.
I was smitten with the contents and am sure books will be treasured. The environmental messages are very good and dear to our hearts also, as adults.
A lovely gift for my 4 year old nephew for his birthday!
Beautiful and delightful
This is an amazing, thought provoking book which will create some great conversations with our grandchildren as they grow up
The text in Away is both lyrical and powerful. It gets the reader to think and care about their world. The message is strong, we can all be mindful and careful about what we throw away, reuse and buy. There is no magic place over the rainbow where discarded things go. One day, perhaps they won't be hidden from sight unless we change what we do.
The text has a Dr Seuss like feel as it questions the reader and gets them to think about the answers. The double page spread illustrations with their varying perspectives and dark backgrounds add multiple layers of meaning to the text. They portray the contrasts of dark and gloomy and natural and beautiful.
This is a book that can appeal to any age and can easily sit upon any home, school or library shelf.
Excellent...very happy with both books for my grandchildren
A truly Beautiful gift for a child growing up in todays world
