***JANUARY’S BOOK OF THE MONTH ***
Happy New year and happy new book of the month. Starting the year with our new pick for January's Book Of The month, Van Dog. A bright and fun title to submerge into this month, join Van Dog as he sets up his easel and creates a new work on the countryside around him. What does he see and what will he create? Packed full of delightful details to spot, it will keep you busy through out the grey days of January.
A hybrid comic and seek-and-find book that contemplates art and creativityVan Dog rides to the countryside to paint a landscape one day. As he mounts his easel, mixes his paints, and contemplates the scenery, the landscape slowly unfolds in weird and wonderful ways: a snail nibbles on a mushroom, ants gather to work, and a giant lizard monster sets off on a journey to Tokyo. As the landscape becomes busier and busier, Van Dog struggles to finish his painting—but is he overwhelmed by his subject, or is the richness of the countryside precisely what inspires him?
