Here at The Amazing Blog, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting products. This week, we have found a fun new book for children and adults alike, called Pollyhester the Footballer and the Lure of Brands.
This is the second book in the Pollyhester series. The author, Louise Verity, is an artist and fashion designer who has been illustrating and writing children’s stories for years. She now lives in France and Ireland with her husband and four dogs.
This morality tale has illustrations which are incredibly intricate, incorporating fabric photos amongst the pencil drawings, adding depth and dimension to the pages. It's a fun read with a strong ethical sentiment behind the colorful characters; support your local community's economy and don’t become a slave to brands. The message is bold while still remaining suitable for children. It's quite the page-turner. There is even a character in the book named after Edwina, our Executive Editor!
The book is a perfect representation of the author’s quirky style and motto, “Be a bird of paradise amongst all the pigeons.” Verity's first book is available on Amazon and both books in the Pollyhester series can be ordered at any local bookshop.
