This beautifully illustrated, hard-back book by Jo Weaver is her first foray into the world of children’s storytelling and doesn’t she do it well. Written and illustrated by Jo, Little One tells the story of a mother bear and her cub and their simple journey of discovery through the seasons, nature and life.
Like all clever children’s books, the story is simple yet profound with stunning illustrations, sensitively rendered in charcoal with superb draughtsmanship, offering a tender portrayal of the mother/cub relationship and the beauty of nature untarnished.
Little One is aimed at toddlers but, really, all age groups will enjoy this book, which is we feel this is the start of an illustrious career for Jo. We look forward to more from this talented young illustrator and storyteller.
Little One by Jo Weaver is published by Hodder Children’s Books, January 2016. £11.99. Buy from amazon.
