The Sea Saw
I read it to joshgok aged 8 & to JakeGOK aged 6
This is a really sweet story about a girl called Sofia who loses her favourite teddy bear at the beach, and then the story continues to follow the journey the bear takes without Sofia and ends with the satisfying notion that nothing is ever truly lose if you keep it in your heart.  It's a short, sweet, feel good book. 

Perhaps the girl has lost her mother, as the reader, you sense this, although it is not said.  Sofia is only seen with her father throughout the story.

I really liked the illustrations in this book, and although it's not immediately obvious, the artwork was created in partnership with The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and it features many elements from over 50 art pieces from their collection. Google it, but basically, the author combined parts of pre-existing artwork to create the new art for his book, even Van Gogh is featured! It's a wonderful way of creating art, I loved the combined pieces, and use of textures etc within the book.
