My Island

Author: Stephanie Demasse-Pottier

A young girl dwells on a lovely island populated by thousands of birds, where she picnics with the animals, plays games, reads, tames snails and tends the flowers. Others are welcome on this island too, if they know how to dream.

Colourful illustrations, using watercolours, coloured pencils and stitched red thread and incorporating a range of geometric patterns, accompany this gentle yet impactful story that celebrates the imagination of young children.
