Book Review: The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak

Jim By Hilaire Belloc with Illustrations by Mini Grey - A Review

I was brought up on Hilaire Belloc’s Cautionary Tales alongside Edward Lear’s Nonsense Poems. I think one of the first poems I ever actively enjoyed was Matilda Who Told Lies And Was Burned To Death by Belloc. 426 more words

Mad About Monkeys
Owen Davey
Flying Eye Books
I’ve loved Owen Davey’s work since receiving a copy of the wordless Foxly’s Feast to review. Here he offers another feast – a visual and factual one about the group of haplorine or dry-nosed primates we call monkeys. 424 more words
