We were lucky enough to hang out with illustrator Hervé Tullet at one of his Doodle Cooking workshops during the Big Draw festival.
Tullet’s quirky vision inspires a playful take on art that invites you on an adventure of pure imagination.
The babes own two copies of books by Tullet (beautifully signed by the author!) and they’re great fun.
The Game of Light (Phaidon Press) has cut-out shapes that when you shine a torch light through them cast shadows of flowers, moon and stars on the walls and ceilings.
It’s magical sitting on the bedroom floor in the semi-darkness, reading the story or making up our own, while the silhouettes dance around us.
In The Game of Let’s Go, you have to close your eyes and trace your finger along a touchy-feely line that runs through the book. There are no words inside, just let your creativity run riot.
Aimed at ages 3-5, these delightful board books offer as much interactive appeal for babies and toddlers as for big kids or the young at heart.
The Let’s Play Games series also includes The Game of Patterns, The Game of Mix & Match, The Game of Finger Worms and The Game of Mixed Up Art, all priced at a very reasonable £4.99 each.
