Greenaway Shorlist - Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf - Please let us know what you think in the comments.
From the well designed dust jacket and stunning cover to the highly stylised graphic novel interior, this is a magnificent celebration of the power of the imagination. There is a clever juxtaposition of black and white to reflect the stale imagination of the beautifully languid gods and vivid full colour panels to reflect the power of ideas. This is particularly felt in the intense image of the wolf. Red is used to great effect to signify that dangerous moment of creation.
