Faves of 2012

Okay it is that time of the year again where anyone and everyone puts together lists of their top picks of the past year. I am going to be no different, I will, however, not be doing a top 10. What I have put here are the ones that really stood out, but truthfully I had many wonderful reading experiences this year just about gone, and I did limit this list to those books published in 2012.

The Snorgh and the Sailor

9781407116525By: Will Buckingham and Thomas Docherty

The Snorgh lives a solitary life, Snorgh’s don’t like visitors, share their soap and absolutely never go on adventures. Well they don’t until the night a sailor knocks on Snorgh’s door and invites himself in. Snorgh’s life, in that evening, changes more than Snorgh could ever have imagined.

A fun, cute tale about getting out or your comfort zone and really living life. The text is wonderfully entertaining – perfect for the older picture book reader, with longer attention spans. The accompanying illustrations are beautifully quirky and full of fun and life. A total joy to read.
