Beatrice Alemagna is an exciting artist who creates beautiful and intriguing picture books.
What is a Child? Is her latest gift to the world of children’s books. What is a Child? Reads like poetry. Reading her words reminds us grownups what childhood is. What it is like to be a child, through their eyes and thoughts. In the same way it makes you realise how peculiar adults can be. Children are innately honest and express themselves freely without fear of judgement. This is a book that makes you stop and reflect for some time after the jacket has been closed. Beautiful.
The illustrations are extraordinary strange and captivating. The compositions reflect the openness of the words, capturing the characters in carefree moments of everyday life.
