Molly and Mae, written by Danny Parker and illustrated by Freya Blackwood
I must admit that I pick up any book illustrated by Freya Blackwood! Not only are Freya’s drawings instantly recognisable, they are beautiful and always match perfectly with meaningful stories.
Danny Parker and Freya Blackwood also paired up for “Perfect” which was an Honour Book in last year’s CBCA Book Awards.
Molly and Mae is another picture book that has a theme that children of many ages will relate to. Through the imagery of a train trip, the author depicts the ups and downs of friendship.
This book is available at the school library, local public libraries and bookshops.
