From acclaimed illustrator, author and artist Leanne Shapton:
Toys Talking is officially out today!
In Toys Talking, Leanne Shapton explores the inner lives of toys to reveal that their thoughts and feelings are just as complicated as our own.
The concerns of these bunnies, bears, and ducks range from the mundane to the existential.
The book is beautifully bound in hardcover and brings Shapton’s gorgeously minimal brushstrokes to a younger audience. It is the kind of book that is an imaginative and stimulating read for children and reveals layers and deeper meaning when read as an adult. As described by British novelist Adam Thirwell, the book is "...unbearably poignant. A children's book for adults, or an adult book for children!"
