Tor.com and Inscription

114-day No from Tor.com.
26-day No from Inscription.
The one from Tor.com was particularly encouraging.
My daughters are now three and nearly six and they enjoyed this. It’s a picture book with a fair degree of prose on each page, enough to tell the story of Susie who has to discover her dream of becoming an artist.

The text is by Sally Morgan so there is a degree of complexity – the parents urge Susie to take up well paid work. And the illustrations are by Bronwyn Bancroft. The ones which sparked most discussion with my kids were one of a rainbow and stars (they liked the colours) and one of Susie at school (Pearl pointed out that most of the students had pink skin and some had brown skin, just like at her school).
