Starlight Sailor - James Mayhew and Jackie Morris

I got this as a present for Christmas, not because of the story, but because of the amazing pictures that work amazingly with the pictures. They are just like the images I can see in my head and they are drawn with great skill and precision. I feel like the pictures on their own tell a million different stories on their own, and the words create a million pictures. At first, I found it hard to believe that the picture were hand drawn but they are. The words are absolutely amazing and word fabulously with the skilfully drawn pictures. I wish I could write or draw as good as these two people can. I think this sort of book would be aimed at people of any age, and I would rate this 9.7********* out of 10**********!
