In Winnie’s workshop the Woolybottomers got to work
Rachel Bright, creator of Love Monster is back with a new series about The Wonderful World of Walter and Winnie and we’ve got hold of a copy of the first book, The No Need to Worry Suit.
In this book, the friends are preparing to take part in the “Seriously Competitive Sports and Funday” and Walter is worried. So ensues lots of speculating about what could go wrong, some extremely creative help from his friends (eg ‘magic stay-on-no-mater-what trousers), some mishaps and ultimately, the message that it is possible to leave your worries behind.
We like the story a lot. There are plenty of funny, surreal moments and the illustrations are friendly and strong. Our only minor issue is with the typeface, which is quite stylised with varying letter sizes throughout the sentences. Although that’s appealing, it may present a challenge for younger readers.
The No Need to Worry Suit is available in softback from HarperCollins for £6.99.
Disclosure: we were sent The No Need to Worry Suit free of charge for review. No payment was received for this post. All posts are 100% honest.
