it was amazing

Another fantastic book by the glorious Woods!
It is important to teach readers that when an author repeats something, it must be important.
THE NAPPING HOUSE repeats and builds the narrative, like "There Was an Old Woman".
Most extraordinary are the illustrations, which give tone and animation, where the words do not.
In addition, there are different "perspectives" in terms of the audience's visual view of what is occurring in the Napping House.
Perspective is not only an important concept for art lovers, but for literature-files, as well.
This book VISUALLY shows what perspective means.
And the lighting for each illustration...
Do not even get me started!
