A funny, heartfelt introduction to the work of Joan Miró through the eyes of young Anthony Penrose, who knew the artist as a family friend – one who visited the house and came along on a memorable trip to the zoo. The book is wonderfully illustrated with a host of Miró’s ‘magic animals’ and great artworks, archive photography by Lee Miller and specially commissioned creations from children today working in Miró’s style.

I wasn’t sure about Bookshop at first, but I’ve seen first-hand how it’s getting people in the habit of supporting independent bookshops rather than buying from Amazon – so I’ve come round to it!
