Once upon a time there was a man called Tom. He did cartoons for the Guardian and the New Yorker, made comics and graphic novels, won an Eisner Award, and put smiles on the faces of legions of fans with his iconic drawing style and smart sense of humour. Then one day he did a children’s picture book, and it made absolute perfect sense. Come and take a closer look at our Children’s Book of the Year 2021, The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess—Tom Gauld’s utterly charming debut picture book, available now signed by the author. When a King and Queen ask for children, an inventor makes a robot out of wood and a witch carves a girl from a log. But when the girl sleeps, secretly turning back into a log, she gets added to a woodpile and carted off. So the sweet little robot (plus the beetles that live inside him) travels the kingdom to find her, and bring her back home. With adorable characters and sumptuous scenes, The Little Wooden Robot is a stunning new fairytale that takes you on a journey through a fantastical world—into dark forests and across the sea, meeting goblins and mushroom queens and all sorts of friendly animals. It’s immediately, instantly gorgeous, and at its heart is a sweet and touching story of what you do for the ones you love, with two brave characters that’ll make you smile. Ideal for ages 3-7 and reading together, this beautiful book has also won many an older heart: we dare you not to fall in love.
