Either way, this is a really fun focal point for classrooms and one that works best if children are given enlarged or close-up access to the illustrations.

follows a child's hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought as he decides to make a clone of himself - and starts to ponder what makes him HIM. as Yoshitake’s reflection on individualism and the importance of building strong selves is a delight. This esoteric little book is a brilliant one to share, it is visually arresting and is such a great book to teach with. I chose to go without glasses, but because I couldn’t see properly, I tried to take the wrong kids onto the slide, which was among the most excruciatingly awkward moments of my life.Distrusting the apple’s convincing appearance, the child’s imagination spirals upwards and outwards into a madcap fantasy world – maybe it’s a star from outer space with tiny aliens on board?
