Hold On Tight would have to be one of the most stunning children's books I have seen in a while.
A beautifully illustrated hardback, it is a gorgeous tale of a little girl going walking with her mother on a blistery, blustery day and the adventures she might have if she was to be blown away.
My children loved imagining flying through the air with her and her teddy bear, seeing the world from a completely different viewpoint.
This is the second book for the incredibly talented illustrator Sara Acton. Sara won the CBC Crichton Award for New Illustrators in 2012 with her first book Ben and Duck, which is one of my youngest's favourite books. She has also illustrated other stories such as The Unexpected Crocodile (written by Kim Kane), and Daisy and the Puppy (written by Lisa Shanahan).
Hold On Tight would definitely make a wonderful addition to any child's book collection.
