Review: Bonjour Camille

When she wakes every morning, Camille has lots and lots to do.

Jumping on the bed. Eating loads of cherries. Drawing faces on balloons. Yelling at winter to go away.

So much to do, so little time!

This is a short, simple story about a little one going about her day (and perhaps driving mum and dad a little nuts).

Gorgeous for its kidlike charm, readers will readily relate to the little things kids do that make their day so rich with all of the five senses, from melting ice cream on the hand to searching maps for something fabulous.

Aguilar's divine illustrations and colour palette make this a great one for picture book collectors.
