What We’ll Build. Plans for our future Together by Oliver Jeffers. Pub. HarperCollins, 2020.

This will be the most thought provoking picture book you will read this year from an author /illustrator who is at the top of his game.

The opening pages have two pairs of hands, small daughters hands and large fathers hands. “What shall we build you and I?.

A house is a good start then” I’ll build your future and you’ll build mine”

Of course lots can happen and things can go wrong and then there is the imaginative stuff. But I will let you find that out.

The illustrations are stunning. Ship sailing through troubled waters and the ending is touching.

One of the best of the year.
