superbabyOur Superbaby by Maris O’Rourke, illus. Helen Bell. Pub. GTM Press 

This is a sophisticated picture book for everybody and it is poetic, profound and imaginative.

When a child is born it is a wondrous thing. It’s every day events like eating and sleeping are magical and it’s behaviours like screaming, crying and smiling can evoke a million reactions.

Maris O’Rourkes text is poetic -“ When you cry -eagles shriek, angels weep” and Helen Bell responds with an illustration that is imaginative, surreal and thought provoking.

There is a space at the beginning of the book for a photograph of the baby and a space at the end for a family photograph.

For me this is a book I would give to my child or grandchild when it is grown to show what you felt when it was born and growing up. The final page is beautiful.

A special book. Contact at  greg_mace@me.com
