Tackling the traditional out and back quest for personal identity in a relatable, tangible and enjoyable representation, Goodhart's and Crane’s My Very Own Space is a super-engaging and thoughtful book, just fine for a quick and casual read, but better for a lingering one.

Synopsis

A little rabbit is trying to read his book in peace, but there's so much going on around him! Maybe he needs some space just for himself. . .

With minimal text accompanying beautiful and sweet illustrations, this charming picture book explores ideas of personal space and sharing in a way that even very young children can enjoy.

Pippa Goodhart is an award winning bestselling author, known for the Winne the Witch series and her collaborations with Nick Sharratt. Among her inspirations are folktales from Scandinavia and the Scottish and Irish coastlines.

A smaller, beige rabbit in a blue dress—possibly the protagonist’s little sibling—crosses the line at a perfect time: the reader is feeling more than ready to leave solitary confinement and rejoin the other rabbits. A sweetly balanced affirmation of the child’s right to space.

Reviewed by Imogen Carter on Apr 25 2017
