So Many Wonderfuls by Tina Matthews.

many wonderfulsSo Many Wonderfuls by Tina Matthews. Pub Walker Books, 2014.

A positive look at a small town community and all it’s services created in sepia ink and digital media illustrations

The front inside cover shows the town of Wonderful in the morning as the town wakes up and the back inside cover shows the town at night when everyone is asleep and the moon shines down.

In between we see the children at school, at play, in the mobile library, at the park, and beneath the stars at a family meal. The message is community.

The mix of sepia drawings and digital images works well and the detail will have children pouring over the illustrations to see what is going on. The scene inside the mobile library is a gem.

The only negative is the written text is sometimes rhyming, sometimes not but always positive.
