Page 45 Review by Stephen

"Don't call me a tomboy,
"I'm made of girly stuff
"like grazes, mud
"and tatty curls
"and toxic belly fluff."

Artfully done!

I adore the entire attitude here, deftly delivered with a degree of defiance but also grace, as the young girls' energy blasts unapologetically from the pages.

At 4" x 12" tall, I also adore the format which, on its first two of sixteen story pages, emphasises the other Winsor McCay elements: the lines, forms, the colours, the traditional rocking horse and the fierce, fantastical imagination of childhood, as well as the rhyme itself:

"Don't call me a tomboy,
"my name is Lily-Lou,
"I love jumping through the treetops
"and hunting like a Sioux."

Plus I adore the production values: thick card cover and silky-smooth pages.

What's not to love?

Hurrah for individuals!
