    The illustrations were amazing and though there was very little in the way of words to read, the artwork really sets the scene without the need of words at all. The story gently touches on themes of self-perception and facing your fears. The animal references form a sense of magic. Though kind and brave, she was sad as an owl because of one thing

    Search Online and in-store stock may differ. Ideal for winter bedtime reading for children and grown-ups. Through the dark and wolfish woods, through the white and silent snow, lived a small girl called Hortense. Readers can compare this with the earlier situation of being afraid of Shadow, and discuss whether Hortense was right. This is a stunningly beautiful debut picture book from two sisters who first discovered a love of stories and fables through the tales told to them by their Polish grandmother.

    As children, Natalia and Lauren shared stories and planned that when they grew up, Natalia would write books and Lauren would draw pictures. She hates her shadow, and thinks her shadow must hate her too. Research and analytics cookies These cookies help us understand user behavior within our services. Wintry, shadowy art in white, black, grays, and pale blues creates the right atmosphere for this darkly suspenseful tale, and the images are tricky enough to keep readers and listeners questioning what they see and what to believe. She hates her shadow.

Hortense and the shadow book

Leah R, Reviewer This is a truly beautiful book inside and out, the artwork is stunning from front cover to back and the writing was just as wonderful. This is a short but delightfully illustrated young children's book, deliciously scary in parts, and very reminiscent of an Eastern European type of folk story.

The illustrations in this book are beautiful! It took me absolutely ages to trawl through it because i constantly lost interest and found something better to do. It's like that all the way through. Absolutely beautiful. While it might be a children's story, it still could be taken further, especially since the basic concept is so lovely.

They all look a little folk-like and look like beautiful paintings, though they keep to a cold wintery palette which gives the story a certain feel. Books with Baby show more Review quote Had I owned this book as a little girl, I would have read it over and over, looking for hidden details.

As children they loved fairytales, animal fables and the stories their Polish grandmother told on snowy nights. None of these things should put you off reading this exquisite book.

Daniela S, Educator A stunning fairy tale both for its story and its illustrations. Claire O, Reviewer Stunning read and beautifully illustrated. Wintry, shadowy art in white, black, grays, and pale blues creates the right atmosphere for this darkly suspenseful tale, and the images are tricky enough to keep readers and listeners questioning what they see and what to believe.

It is a haunting, folk-tale like story. To learn more about cookies, please see our cookie policy. Hortense hated her shadow. Hortense and the Shadow is the sisters' debut collaboration. I really loved it. Overjoyed to be free at last, she is so very happy Please call before going to store.

There are so many things out there making youngsters question their appearance, their mental health etc that these books have become part of the fight against this culture and I do hope that continues as the pressure on children and teenagers in not likely to lessen any time soon unfortunately.
