Derived from magazines, posters, books, blogs and personal projects, Kaleidoscope includes interviews with six talented and enthusiastic masters of their art. Similar to a kaleidoscope, a good story also employs
reflection on the different elements to create a narrative or pattern that is captivating to the reader.
The result relies heavily on the artist s ability to turn the lens just right and capture the essentials of setting characterisation, mood, detail, motion and more to convey the intended meaning.
A Walk in the Forest introduced the enormously talented Maria Dek,
and When I Am Big is a beguiling follow up to her first success.
Charming illustrations and text encourage young children to explore what they can do as they grow up. The adventurous child imagines "I will tie my shoes all by myself, make 3 knots with big bows"; to eat twenty pizzas in one sitting, or walk animals, eight at a time, while teaching them tricks.
When I Am Big is also an unconventional counting book, as it goes all the way to twenty-five.
The result is a book that nourishes a child's curiosity, confidence, and delight in the world's wonders.
