A New Room for William
'Sally Grindley excels in stories that extend a child's emotional experience without becoming sentimental or precious' The Scotsman When William moves house he does not like his new room. He does not like his new garden and he wants to go back to his old house. But moving is always hard and William's mum persuades him that he would feel much better if he helped choose the wallpaper for his room. Soon William is cheering up - because he chose dinosaur wallpaper - and dinosaurs are his favourite. And he is cheering up because he has met the boy next door with whom he is soon having a great time playing in the tree that they share. Finally William's mother has decorated William's room and he loves it! But just one question remains unanswered. And you have to read the book to find out what it is! A fabulous picture book with brilliantly integrated art and words, working together to masterful, and tear-jerking, effect.
