Bed time reading

Yesterday I began reading two books to B6. The pictures and the text are keeping us both amused and intrigued. The first is Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver retold by Martin Jenkins. The illustrations are filled with tiny details so that each time you gaze at them you find something new. I have not yet read the original but the retelling has B6 asking for more.
The second is Mixed Beasts written by Kenyon Cox and illustrated by Wallace Edwards. The pictures have had B6 chuckling, studying and searching, as once again there are details to be found after closer observation. Some of the favourite beasts so far have been the Kangarooster, the Bumblebeaver and the Peanuthatch.
