‘Another gem for the stable (pun intended!)’ Fab review from Dawn Finch for AdoraBULL on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure!

An Awfully Big Blog Adventure has just posted a wonderful review for AdoraBULL by Alison Donald and illustrated by Alex Willmore from librarian and children’s writer Dawn Finch:

This is a completely charming picture book that takes a look at what it means to be adorable, and to be adored. It explores in subtle ways the nature of friendship, and loneliness, and being unique and proud of who you are. Donald’s gentle story unfolds around Willmore’s bright and bold illustrations. I love Willmore’s illustrations and am so pleased to see these two talents working together again. Their previous collaboration - The New LiBEARian is a great favourite of mine. AdoraBULL is another gem for the stable (pun intended!).

It is worth mentioning that this is a new one from indie publisher, Maverick. Launched in 2009 by Steve Bicknell. As you know, I am a bit of a fan of indie presses and this one is growing fast and is supporting some really exciting new writers and illustrators. They are well worth keeping an eye on! If you are a teacher or librarian, their resources page is well worth a visit too.’

Thank you so much, Dawn!
