The design is brilliant and the concept is simple: at one level it is an obvious pre-school book of shared experiences, with ssshhh and BOO! to add to the joining in, or an eye-opening aid to seeing the rich wonders of an ordinary walk. Then again it is a superb book of nature photos just as they stand. At any and at every level this is a lovely book. --School Librarian (UK)
With its fresh green palette, this book is a pleasure to read. Enjoy it and be inspired by it. Get out and make your own green line! --Carousel, November 2009
A quirky, attractive book and should enhance any walk in the park with your child. --INIS
About the Author
Born in London, Polly Farquharson studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College of Art. She then spent three years living in Italy working as an artist and translator. Between 1991 and 2003 she was a freelance photographer based in London, regularly contributing photographs of gardens, interiors, people and still life to magazines such as 'World of Interiors', 'Casa Vogue', 'Elle Decoration', 'Blueprint', 'Wallpaper', 'Gardens Illustrated', 'The Guardian' and 'The Times'. Alongside magazine work she also worked as an artist making prints and drawings from her studio in London. Since 2003 she has taken time out to be with her two daughters. The inspiration for THE GREEN LINE comes from the many times she and her children have enjoyed roaming across Hampstead Heath. The photographs were all taken on the Heath and the green line came from the idea of tracing one's own path on a small journey.

So here you have wonderful illustrations, an orginal engaging concept that encourages children to interact with the book by tracing their own journey, and a text that is playful, charming and leaves lots of room for imagination. You even get to count ducks along the way! All this ends up back home and is sure to inspire many trips to the park. A solid recommend for a group read aloud and also one on one sharing. There is just so much good stuff here- don't miss this one!
