This picture book tackles one big question: why am I here? One day a boy lands unexpectedly on the page. He discovers the world around him, and finds his place in it, but still his question remains.
As usual, Peter Carnavas says a lot with very few words. In fact the most powerful page in the book is almost entirely blank and says nothing at all! The Boy on the Page is a feel-good narrative which parents will enjoy – possibly more so than the children they are reading to. The satisfying conclusion acknowledges that we are all here simply to love and be loved.
- provoking thoughtful conversation
- exploring timelines (child -> teenager -> adult -> parent ->)
- Lower primary
