Product description


Nop is a gentle, fantastical story, told simply but with a rich, advanced vocabulary that really suits the rather sophisticated, painterly illustrations. Caroline Magerl has used ink and watercolour to create sensitive pictures with real depth and interesting perspective., Books and Publishing

Nop is no exception. This scruffy little bear personifies childhoods left behind, love grown old but also the universal need to feel a sense of belonging and purpose...Nop is appealing on many levels; from a visual view point it simultaneously caresses and enlivens your senses...Nop is such a tale and a toy who embodies hope, tenacity, serendipity, purpose and love., Dims Write Stuff

What an absolutely, divinely delightful book. Turning each page I felt held, wrapped up in the story like a familiar, comfortable blanket. Nop is such an endearing character and we long for him to be happy. Every page is stunning. The language, the art. This is a truly beautiful book., Pass It On

Caroline Magerl creates the most extraordinary, whimsical worlds in her picture books. Each one is like a treasure box, just waiting to share its wondrous gifts.

Nop is another heartwarming story with Caroline's trademark melding of warmth and melancholy, friendship and longing.

The exquisite illustrations have an eccentricity that is both magical and poignant. Loose lines of ink and washes of watercolour capture the fantastical world of Nop, which glows with hope amid the dust and litter, and shines with joy in the final scenes.

Caroline's text is as deft as her brushwork, colouring each page with rich imagery and sumptuous language that lingers on the tongue.

You'll want to hold this treasure in your hands for a long time after you finish reading. Highly recommended.

, Kids' Book Review

Nop is loveable and cute and Magerl has masterfully used minimal language to convey her whimsical ideas. Together making this story a great shared read at bedtime for young readers., Reading Time
