The Car­pen­ter

Foreword Reviews - - Spotlight Children’s Picture Books -

Bruna Bar­ros, Gibbs Smith, Hard­cover $12.99 (40pp) 978-1-4236-4676-1

A young boy aban­dons his beloved elec­tron­ics when an old fash­ioned yel­low jointed tape mea­sure causes his imag­i­na­tion to run wild in The Car­pen­ter, a word­less ex­pres­sion of the sim­ple joys found in ex­plo­ration and cre­ative play. Brazil­ian il­lus­tra­tor Bruna Bar­ros uses ba­sic yet bold con­trast­ing col­ors and lines that show­case the trans­for­ma­tion of a car­pen­ter’s shop into a ver­i­ta­ble ocean of won­der, giv­ing Harold and his pur­ple crayon a run for their money.
