Where is Pim? by Lena and Olof Landstrom.
Written text in a picture book does not get any more minimalistic than in this second book from Swedish husband and wife team Lena and Olof Landstrom but the illustrations have much to tell even though they are as simple as the text.
Pom’s day is boring and he hurls Pim his 4 legged, pinky, round cuddly toy with two eyes, into the air. A dog with a red collar hurtles through the air to take him away but where.
Pom and identical dog with blue collar go looking for Pim. There is a paper bag, a wet sock and a drink can to investigate. Pom is tearful but hope is at large as red collar dog turns up with Pim, brighteyed and bushy tailed.
Water colour illustrations are perfect. Love Pom’s knitted neck to knee cardigan with four buttons. My granddaughters thought the red collared dog was mean to take Pim away.
