My favourite illustrated children’s book

I can’t get enough of The Paper Dolls,written by the eponymous Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Rebecca Cobb.

Rebecca Cobb is such a brilliant artist. I wish I could draw people and faces like that! I’m inspired to try to copy her pictures! It’s harder than it looks.

Last Christmas we made paper dolls who danced around our tree. We also made my husband a t-shirt with our own family as caricature paper dolls on it!

We love it so much we got nerdy in our adoration. I think I’ve overkilled it, my daughter won’t have it read to her any more. Gutted!
