Bruno, the cat in the checkered cap, takes life as it comes. When its too rainy to go outside, he rustles up an inside picnic with his friends. When he meets a fish swimming in the air, he follows it. Why not! When the canary forgets how to sing, Bruno helps out. Days come and go, and for Bruno they always bring something interesting. And once in a while, a day comes along that is just about perfect!
These six linked stories by a top childrens writer and renowned comic artist are full of friendship, silliness, and the little moments that make life good.
Bruno: Some of the more interesting days in my life so far by Catharina Valckx and Nicolas Hubesch
I like Bruno. He’s a kind cat with a checkered cap. Bruno: Some of the More Interesting Days in my Life So Far is written by Catharina Valckx and illustrated by comic artist Nicolas Hubesch. It’s a funny and charming picture book for junior readers, and a great read-aloud for younger children, too! The drawings are delightful, with plenty to look at in the wonderful street scenes and subtle elements in the pictures that children will like to find. Mostly, it is the characters that will win you over. Bruno is thoughtful, curious and kind, and you’ll enjoy meeting his friends as he takes you through six days – that is six of the more interesting days in his life so far. The day that everything was topsy-turvy, the day it rained and the day the power went out to mention a few. Enjoyable stories about friendship and the small moments in life that can make you smile. Another charmer from Gecko Press.
