Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom, award-winning author/illustrators of many of the Wonderwise titles, have created an exciting new collection of young non-fiction books that are perfect for children just beginning to read. Each book explores a particular area of learning with a simple narrative text (no more than two lines per page) and beautiful illustrations which, where appropriate, are labelled or given very simple captions. This differentiated text gently introduces readers to some of the methods of extracting information from a non-fiction book, but still enables them to read the book as a story. It is also possible for the child to 'read' each book through the pictures, not using the words at all. Each book has a list of contents, glossary/further information and index. Seasons Turning takes you through the year and different sensations each season brings; When the Sun Goes Down describes how life continues in the dark, when you are fast asleep.
Mick Manning was head of illustration at Glasgow School of Art. He has written and illustrated a number of children's books. Brita Granstrom has also illustrated many books, including some for Walker Books. They are married and live in Berwick upon Tweed with their two sons. Mick and Brita's many books include the awarding winners THE WORLD IS FULL OF BABIES, WHAT'S UNDER THE BED?, WASH, SCRUB, BRUSH and HOW DID I BEGIN?
