Jack’s Amazing Shadow (children’s picture book review)


Come back shadow! – Miss J, 1

A quick post to tell you about one of Miss J and JD’s current favourite reads, Jack’s Amazing Shadow by Tom Percival.

It’s about a normal little boy, who happens to be best friends with his shadow until one day…they have a falling out.

Here’s a rather lovely trailer, which does a great job of communicating the look and feel of the book.

The big, bright illustrations really engage Miss J, while the nuances of the storyline (friendship, honesty, behaviour, loss) all resonate and interest JD – a great read.

Published by Pavilion Childrens Books, Jack’s Amazing Shadow has an RRP of £5.99 but is currently available on Amazon for £4.49.
