The Green Ship

Author: Quentin Blake
Illustrator: Quentin Blake
Publisher: Penguin

COLLECTION

Literature

YEAR GROUP

Years 3 and 4

Two children discover a ship made out of trees and bushes. On climbing aboard they enter their own fantasy world, which they share with two equally imaginative adults.

A thematically rich picture book which captures both adult and child perspectives on the same narrative. As would be expected from any book written by Quentin Blake, the illustrations are integral to the narrative and open up discussions around how text and illustrations can combine to tell a story, whilst also posing alternative viewpoints.
