The Acrobat by Alborozo (Child's Play Books)
Alborozo's illustrative work is fabulous, and it's great to see his work finally appear in a children's book that's so full of energy and joie de vivre.
Featuring a talented tumbler who runs away from the circus when he's not quite getting the attention he deserves, "The Acrobat" is fun and original and there's an underlying message that will ring very true for any parents reading this book to their children...
Sometimes, just sometimes, it doesn't seem to matter what you do, and how impressive you do it, kids are wrapped up in their own world getting on with their own things.
It's funny to see the acrobat pulling out all the stops to juggle, tumble, twist and turn - but perhaps the acrobat's best trick requires assistance - lots of assistance - in order to impress those kids in the end.
What a fantastic start to Alborozo's children's book career - We hope for many many more from this talented fellah!
Charlotte's best bit: Can't tell you as it'll give too much away but the book does have a fantastic and colourful end to it that will dazzle and inspire!
Daddy's Favourite bit: A book that's full of energy and originality, with a real surprise ending that's so utterly cool, we love it!
