Imagine a City by Elise Hurst
Elise Hurst’s masterful use of pen and ink has created an atmospheric world where mysterious happenings occur while an adult and two children take a trip to town. As they walk through the city, visiting a gallery, garden, museum and bookshop, magical and unexpected things enchant them.
Hurst’s finely detailed, black ink pictures have an old-world feel and invite the reader to look very closely to fully appreciate them. Children’s minds are open to the inexplicable and they will find plenty here to tantalise their imaginations.
For ages 3 and up.
