All Round is a little black circle.He lives in a grey country where there’s always noise. All round is bored:“Elsewhere, he thinks, it must be more beautiful!”He decides to take a tour around the world. The world is a great, blue ball. Anyway, that’s what he’s been told… So he leaves, wanting to find out! This is an excellent story for young children. It is poetic, realistic, charming and rhythmical. Children embark on a thrilling journey with a small black circle and discover a planet called the Big Blue, which is actually made up of all kinds of colours. The book uses all the senses, associating a colour – yellow, for example – with a feeling – warmth – and a sound on the CD. This magnificent album works with and without the CD.
'In this story everything is linked... Sensory experiences are reinforced by the effect of the textures used in the illustrtions... and subtle noises and musical touches which accompany the story. Simply put, the tale itself is one of discovery where the world becomes a whole lot more interesting with all the new colours, and sensations, in it.'
