Vasanti Unka's new book

NZ Writer and Illustrator
Vasanti Unka   Stripes! No, Spots
Puffin Books 2015 $25.00hb 32pp (fold-out pages)
ISBN 978 0 1435 0696 6
Themes: Arguments/ Aesthetics / Fashions/ Jungles/ War

A disagreement between leopard and tiger over which is the most aesthetically pleasing – stripes or spots - soon builds from a mere argument into an all out war amongst the green, lush colours of the jungle background. Much to think about here for a wide group of children and new delights to discover with every ‘reading’. Watch out for David Attenborough in his khaki-coloured jacket! And -  explore the net for more about the writer/illustrator whose The Boring Book won the 2014 New Zealand Post Margaret Mahy Book of the Year and was also the winner in the Awards’ Picture Book category.
