By: Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley
Luke sees things a little differently to the rest of the boys in his class. They are happy to see and do as they are told but Luke sees different colours and different shapes. He sees things a little off centre. Because of this Luke feels as though he doesn’t fit in and his teacher is always shouting at him. Then one day he discovers a place full of things that show him others see the world like he does. Things there make him happy, finally he feels as though he is home.
This CBCA Honour Book is a story about being different and celebrates that. The story perfectly tells of Luke’s frustration and the illustrations wonderfully depict how it is to be creative and see more than what those around you see, from the flatness of most of life to the colourful explosion of things Luke imagines.
An interesting book and definitely one to share especially with a creative child.
