Rich depictions of new worlds

13th February 2004 at 00:00
Tamarind continues to produce high quality picture books for seven-year-olds. In The Feather by Dot Cleeve and Kim Harley (pound;5.50), Paula talks to a whole flock of different birds - swan, moorhen, kingfisher, wagtail - as she tries to find out where a single plume came from. The brief poetic replies reflect an entire world of colour and diversity. The Bush by Bernard Ashley and Lynne Willey (pound;5.50) is set in Uganda, where Joyce has to find a way of saving her pet rabbit, Kipenzi, from the determined butcher who wants to turn him into someone's dinner.

Both books are richly illustrated with scenes of children and town and country.
