If you were creating a world of your own, what would it look like? Would you build your house out of brick - or out of jelly? Would it be on the ground or in a tree? Would your shops sell envelopes and sweets - or shoes for superheroes? Would you ride a train to town, or a dinosaur? Taking the reader on an extraordinary visual journey through her imaginative world, award-winning illustrator, Laura Carlin, inspires children to look , draw and make - first from life, and then from the imagination through sharing her own personal thought-processes and drawing techniques. Using the narrative of a day - from getting up in the morning, to going to bed at night - Laura shows children how she records every day things and events on paper, and then improves them through her wild and witty imagination - helping children form a visual manifesto of their own world, and enthusing them to find enjoyment and entertainment in drawing and creating with the most everyday objects.
