Map of Days
There is something magical about a grandparent’s house. It is a home that a grandchild is completely welcome in and yet is not typically his or her home. It is a series of rooms with objects in that belong to someone else; collections of things that you are not surrounded by daily; it is a place of curiosity, exploration and stories.
This is certainly true for Richard, in Hunter’s glorious new title ‘Map of Days’, where one particular visit to his grandfather’s house reveals a room Richard has never entered before and unexpected secrets. The reader travels alongside Richard on his adventure, which is heightened by the panelled illustrations that flow colour and atmosphere throughout the book. A beautiful story of creation, nature and the passing of time.
