Milo Imagines The World
About this deal
Readers of Milo Imagines the World will feel compassion stacked on top of heartache on top of humility on top of hope. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors.

There seem to be ‘ wedding dressed’ people and a ‘ dog peeking of a‘ handbag, alongside a ‘ whiskered man’ and a ‘ business man‘ with a ‘ blank, lonely face’. I don't want to spoil the ending but it's a story about a boy named Milo and his sister who are riding the train, and on their ride, Milo draws pictures of the other passengers and makes up stories about who they are and where they're going. Robinson’s signature collage illustrations bring Milo and his sister’s distinct personalities to life .

With the same combination of wide-eyed observation and suspenseful buildup to a socially conscious revelation that readers cherished in this duo's award-winning Last Stop on Market Street (2015), this picture book offers a child's view of the impacts of incarceration on families. Matt de la Pena and Christian Robinson once again deliver a hugely powerful and enjoyable picture book, full of rich details both to look at and to talk about. Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example. For most readers though, seeing a 'Mum' character in orange and meeting their small child behind a table, watched my guards with holsters. Milo’s drawings help him understand the world in ways that just talking may not, echoing the value of art therapy for children in processing difficult experiences, as well as reminding us of the value of drawing as expression for everyone.
This also introduces the idea that people who are incarcerated have families that come and spend time with them.
