Paula Green reviews Sylvia and the Birds


‘So many children’s books published in Aotearoa are crafted with love and care. Massey University Press pays exemplary attention to book design, the feel of the paper, the cover, the size and look of the font! Their recent project, Sylvia and the Birds, is a visual delight. The book is designed and illustrated by Sarah Laing with verve, with captivating movement and life (she did Poetry Box’s header!). The book itself is an all-encompassing reader experience: a smorgasbord of prose, comic strips, graphic nonfiction, poetry. Writer Johanna Emeney and Sarah make an excellent team.’
