Great news! Picture book creators Tania McCartney & Tina Snerling have come together for a second time. The result? The vibrant and modern Tottie & Dot.
Whimsical, fun and vibrant Tottie & Dot has a fabulous visual appeal. The turquoise and magenta hues are so striking bringing these two adorable characters to life.
Tottie and Dot live next door to each other. They live a cute lifestyle, nibbling apricot sandwiches & sipping marshmallow lemonade together. They really are great friends.
Unfortunately they both fall foul to the 'keeping up with the Joneses' trap in a rather amusing twist.
Tottie decides to paint her house mauve. Well, Dot's no so sure about that ... so paints hers pistachio. This is just the beginning ... awnings appears, Dot pebbles her path with gum balls. Before long there are roller coasters & ski slops as it all gets a little crazy ... resulting in many giggles from little readers.
A wordless double page here has a great visual impact to emphasise the lengths these girls have gone to. A great way to help little readers absorb what has happened to Tottie & Dot's friendship.
Tottie and Dot resolve the situation in their own, careful manner.
Tottie & Dot is a fun picture book with a wonderfully subtle message. The detailed illustrations are wonderful fun to pour over ... try & spot those two cheeky birds who crop up on each page!
