I recently showed Harrison Webbling a list of books to choose from on my Pinterest, he immediately chose The Clown’s Clothes by Eszter Molnar because he loved the illustration on the front cover. I purchased it from Amazon and it arrived really quickly. We were not disappointed in the slightest.
Written by Eszter Molnar and illustrated by Anita Bagdi, The Clown’s Clothes tells the story of an adorable clown named Tommy who has lost his clothes throughout the day and is on the search to find them with the help of his friends.
The story is beautiful and shows children that you don’t have to give up, you can ask for help and a problem shared is a problem solved. As Tommy goes through his day there are funny little clues to find which show you how Tommy’s clothes went missing in the first place.
The pictures are funny, colourful and engaging. They are really striking and blend seamlessly with the story. The author and illustrator should be really proud of the beautiful book that they have produced. Tommy may have been Harrison’s favourite character but for me, his little mouse companion (who is dressed just like him) really steals my heart.
We have had this book for a couple of weeks now and I can honestly say that we have read it and re-read it so many times. It has become a favourite of Harrison’s and he can now read the whole book himself without help.
If you are looking for a bright colourful story with a very uplifting ending that will have the children really engaging with the illustrations then I really recommend The Clown’s Clothes.
Harrison gave it a five out of five webs and is looking forward to more of Tommy’s adventures.
Thank you for reading our review. This is our own opinion after purchasing The Clown’s Clothes.
