An inventive and humorous take on the classic ‘before’ and ‘after’ book. My Pictures After the Storm includes a collection of double-page spreads illustrating normalcy followed by a significant change.
The first spread shows items found at the beach, after the storm, things are tipped over, the towel has blown away, and a boy’s ice cream has fallen on the ground. Another spread shows food items, after lunch, all that’s left is an apple core, breadcrumbs, cheese rind. And the boiled spinach? Well, it’s still there… The illustrations are great fun to explore, and children will love spotting the differences and making inferences as to what has happened in the pictures.
