Mike Falls Up written by Candy Gourlay and illustrated by Carles Ballesteros has been included in Imogen Russell Williams’ roundup of the best new children’s books for The Guardian:
“Gourlay’s pared-back text and Ballesteros’ involving images create the absorbing sense of a child’s imagination at play in this splendidly surreal adventure for 5+.”
On a hot day in the Chocolate Hills, Mike and his dog, Bowow, find a crack in the earth and an invitation reading: “Birthday. Come now. Just fall up.”
Little Tiger published Mike Falls Up on 6 January 2022.
