The delightful duo are the creation of award-winning illustrator and animator Yasmeen Ismail, who has won The New York Times’ Best Illustrated Book Award and the V&A Best Illustrated Book Award.

New Review

Kiki and Bobo’s Sunny Day is a ‘Lift the Flaps’ hardback book.

On a bright sunny day, Kiki decides that she would like to go to the beach, and swim in the sea. However Bobo isn’t very impressed with the suggestion.

On the way to the beach Bobo is quiet, then when they get there, every time Kiki said it was time to swim in the sea, Bobo had a different suggestion. Kiki got fed up of Bobo’s other suggestions and stated they were going in the sea now, which made Bobo cry. It would seem that he was frightened of swimming in the sea, but with Kiki’s help, he faced his fear.

This is a beautiful, colourful book that I am sure young children will enjoy reading, and opening the flaps. The illustrations are exquisite and the plot has been wonderfully thought out and executed.

The book shows what true friendship is all about, and the message of helping your friends is loud and clear for all children to understand.

A lovely little book, that I am sure will be read over and over again.
