Book Week - Remarkably Rexy

Welcome back bibliophiles,

It's my book week so I'm bringing you all sorts of titles for a week of marvelling over the words of the world.

Remarkably Rexy by Craig Smith is a great picture book. Craig Smith has the enviable combo of being both an experienced author and illustrator (yes, I may envy this combo more than I should). This book is the first time, however, that he has done both in one book.

Rex is a cat to love, sure he's a little narcissistic, but it's for the children that he maintains his general awesomeness. It's another typical day as he prepares for his performance but this day is going to include a visitor that just might steal his thunder.....

The illustrations are full of style and movement and any little cat lover will be sure to fall in love with Rex. The drama of the narrative is perfectly captured by the pictures.

Plus there is a link to a free audio reading of the book too - audio books for the win!

Details - Allen & Unwin, August 2015, RRP $24.99 (HB)

love you more than a performance where no one steals my thunder xxx
