This picture offers a really interesting perspective into Mole and Rat's world. Although Rat is content initially to remain on the river which he had always known and which seems large to Mole at first, life on the river is very small compared to the large world they inhabit.
The Dark by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Jon Klassen. Ive looked at this as Jon Klassen is a favourite children's book illustrator of mine, his work is child friendly but quite sophisticated in the overall look of the work he creates. In reference to the theme of my book being Pandoras Box, this book uses dark and light and the idea of fear in a child friendly way.
