What a Wonderful World by Tim Hopgood

Very colourful highly illustrated book, no real concept or story, however - perhaps better for fans of the song rather than children. This book uses the words of the well known song, verboten with a CD of Louis Armstrong’s track in the back. Not a particularly interesting read but the song itself has a good message of tolerance and diversity. A good book for a project in schools because of the multiple platforms that you could explore within a lesson surrounding this book. 

Best bits: Eye-catching illustration

Worst bits: Somewhat lacking in story - more of an homage than a piece within itself. 

Buy the book from the Oxford University Press website here.
