Audiobooks The Three Sillies –

The Three Sillies A rollicking new picture book filled with exquisite artwork and based on a traditional tale from the acclaimed Tony RossOnce upon a time, George, a handsome but sensible boy, falls in love with Jess, a pretty but silly girl After meeting Jess s silly family, George wonders if marrying her is a sensible thing to do after all This is a less gruesome version of a well known traditional fairy tale It s notable for Tony Ross s illustrations, where he s used graphite pencil outlines instead of his usual ink outline under his hallmark watercolour, and achieved an unusual effect. Thank goodness for silly Tony Ross does it so well Loads of fun leaving a tiny but clear impression that common sense and logic are fine, but letting go of sensible now and then is liberating and good for you too The lengthy narrative and zany drawings will hold the attention spans of the younger and higher primary readers. I had this book as a child It has comical writing, my favourite being hey, ancient baggage when George sees an old lady George might be sensible but he appears to be missing his manners
