Pass It On

Pass It On

By Sophy Henn
Published by Puffin

Pass It On is the latest book by Sophy Henn, last year's World Book Day illustrator. Having reviewed Sophy's last three books; Where Bear?, Pom Pom gets the grumps and Pom Pom the Champion, you can't help but love Sophy's bright and colourful style.

Pass It On is a joyful book that will make you smile - if you spot something great, or chance upon a chuckle, or spot a thing of wonder, jump for joy and pass it on. A positive book all about spreading happiness. We follow a little boy, from the moment he wakes up, to all the wonderful things he sees and does and all the happy moments he experiences. 

Sophy Henn has a unique and contemporary style which works well with her warm style of writing. Like her previous books, I like her use of solid background colours and limited use of colour for the characters and objects, and using the screen printed effect, it softens the edges. This book oozes happiness which is great and will hopefully help children and adults find happiness in everyday things!

If you're a fan of Pom Pom, keep an eye out for him, as he's being taken for a thrilling ride! Pass It On is available in all good bookshops and online here.
