'Arthur's Dream Boat' by Polly Dunbar is a real favourite of mine when it comes to picture books. The little boy, Arthur, is desperate to share his dream (about a beautiful boat) with his family, but no one will listen. As with most dreams the retelling can become more elaborate and we literally see this happening on Arthur's head. With each new detail he tells his family so another delightful addition to the boat is born. Beautifully illustrated by Polly Dunbar, author and illustrator, creator of the 'Tilly and Friends' series and co-founder of the children's theatre company Long Nose Puppets.
I love Polly's illustration work, such a great style!
