Sophisticated picture books

Take a close look at our sophisticated picture books. These books are ideal for any age. 
The stories have impact and the illustrations hold so much more than what you see at first glance.
There are hidden symbols, meanings and concepts that are worth spending time to enjoy.
There is a number of new ones on display in the library but don't forget the sophisticated books stand also for all the old favourites.

Especially good is anything by Colin Thompson.

The big little book of happy sadness
Random House 2008
  George is lonely but finds a scruffy dog just as lonely as he is in an animal shelter. It is a delightful story, both sad and happy. The illustrations are quirky which perfectly suit George and his grandmother.
