Do you have kid that love to do art projects? I try to keep a box of random bits and bobs along with markers, glue, scissors, the usual crafty supplies. My husband thinks I'm crazy for keeping things like egg cartons and toilet paper cardboard tubes, but I think these things are treasures! They can be turned into anything, and they provide that open-ended quality to craft time. Well, if your kids love to cut and paste and turn those egg cartons and old shoe boxes into art, tell them to keep it up! They might end up creating something as totally awesome as the collage art work in this brand new book, Cloud Cuckoo Land, by authors Sam Davies and Andy Watts, AKA Wavey n Snotts.
Cloud Cuckoo Land takes the reader on one crazy journey through an artsy collage world filled with unusual and imaginative creatures like Snoobly-Snarks and Hofflemabots that glow in the dark along with a blue rabbit that walks on stilts! Each character is wildly creative and based on the author's idea of using animal idioms to tell a story. The story-style is very much in the family of Dr. Seuss - wacky and fun and a little nonsensical but in the best way. Kids will love it!
We look forward to reading more from Wavey n Snotts as they produce more adventures!
