From the bestselling illustrator Peter Frankopan’s The Silk Roads comes a witty, magnificently-produced book, playing with the idea of “sorting”.
The animal kingdom, modes of transport, musical instruments, art and architectural movements, cloud classification ? anything and everything can be sorted into groups! Framed by a charming narrative about a father and son, this is a book about categories; on a journey into town, a boy called Arvo explores the many ways in which we classify the world around us, to charming – and often amusing – effect.
One of a Kind marks Neil Packer’s debut as an author-illustrator, following his extraordinary artwork for Peter Frankopan’s The Silk Roads. With a charming text and breathtaking pictures, this story deserves its title: a true original by a remarkable talent.
