ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Mopoke loves peace and quiet - but is he going to find it? This is a simple book that has a lot of fun playing with words and concepts, with very striking illustrations. It tells a story with very few words, and only the expressive face and body of the nocturnal bird, likewise rendered in a series of geometric shapes that still manage to capture the essence of the owl. Hard to explain without showing, but this will be such a delight to share with the pre-schooler in your life! Lindy Jones
This is a Mopoke. Mopoke loves peace and quiet. He is about to find out that you can't always get what your want. Visually brilliant, and hysterically funny, Philips pictures tell a thousand words, with the support of some very sparse, but hilarious, text. This is a book destined to become a classic.
