Here is a delightful new book that some of you might be interested in: a 'Sense and Sensibility' board book for children. It is produced by the same clever people who brought us the 'Pride and Prejudice' baby board book, Alison Oliver and Jennifer Adams. Once again they have proven, that one is never too young to enjoy Jane Austen. This beautifully produced BabyLit book, is bright, colourful and full of irony, that will not be lost on the adult reader. As such, it is very much in the Austen vein and at under €7 from the Book Depository (including postage) this is one not to be missed, for ages 0 to 103. Guaranteed to make you smile.
This version of Sense and Sensibility deals with opposites - could there be a more pertinent theme where Marianne and Elinor are concerned?
Indeed, the novel, as we are simply shown, is full of opposites.
Willoughby and Colonel Brandon...
The list goes on and on. A worthy buy, for the delicious illustrations alone.
