The Paper Dolls
The Paper Dolls
6 June, 2013
A picturebook that seems simple but gets richer every time you look at it... Cobb's illustrations capture the joy of childhood; between them, she and the Children's Laureate have made a book that works like magic. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
The Paper Dolls and The Crocodile Who DIdn't Like Water [and My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish] were all picked as top summer reads in the Metro this week. The selectors included George Hanratty from Tales on Moon Lane bookshop and Katherine Woodfine from Booktrust. * metro.co.uk *
Rebecca Cobb's beautifully drawn and colourful illustrations are absolutely charming... I don't want to spoil the ending, but I can say that the inherent message of the story, that nothing is truly destroyed once it becomes a memory, left us both feeling surprisingly contented! * muffandteacake.co.uk *
Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's best-loved picture books, and was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate. Her books include What the Ladybird Heard, Tyrannosaurus Drip and the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty languages. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Sussex and Edinburgh.
Rebecca Cobb is rapidly establishing herself as one of the most talented names in picture books.
Since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004 she has published a number of well-received books with Macmillan, including the heart-breakingly beautiful Missing Mummy and the critically acclaimed Aunt Amelia. Twice shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, Rebecca won the Waterstones' Children's Book Prize for her brilliant book Lunchtime. In addition to working on her own books and collaborating with the inimitable Julia Donaldson for Macmillan, Rebecca illustrates stories written by Richard Curtis for Puffin. Rebecca lives in Falmouth with her husband and young daughter.
