Review:

This beautiful, touching book looks through the eyes of a child whose innocent delight at the world brings a sense of childlike wonder into every day life. -- Alan Nolan * Inis * Footpath Flowers is a superb wordless book; its quiet beauty, its narrative full of unassuming grace will fill its readers with a real sense of wonder and yearning for those fleeting voiceless moments of perfection. -- Library Mice * Library Mice * It's a powerful reminder of the importance of appreciating our surroundings and the mutual gift of giving - two lessons which you certainly want your child to learn. -- Junior * Junior * Full of poignancy, this is a book to revisit and to cherish. -- Jill Bennet * Red Reading Hub * This is an unusual and delightful book which will give the adult and small person of five or six lots to talk about as they go through the pages. -- Newbury Weekly News * Newbury Weekly News * This is [a] book to look at over [and over] again - there are new discoveries every time. -- Independent Bookshop Week supplement * The Guardian * "...this is an anthem for kindness, for beauty in unlikely places and for the things a child seas that adults don't. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * Footpath Flowers is a beautiful book that retains its simplicity whilst also conveying a powerful message. * Armadillo Magazine * There is a thoughtful quality to this wordless, mostly black and white picture book, the gentle story of a little girl picking wild flowers on a walk home with her father [...] There's much to discuss around this story, which has a pleasingly reflective tone and a fine-tuned feeling that all is good in the world. * The Guardian * Reminiscent of a black and white movie, this book shows scenes frame by frame [...] This is a beautiful book with a powerful message. * Inis Reading Guide * Footpath Flowers, cleverly and beautifully illustrated in monotones with only the occasional splashes of colour, effectively and evocatively leads the reader to explore messages and inferences from the simple story of a child's capacity for finding joy in small things. * The School Librarian * A wonderful wordless book about finding beauty in unlikely places if we just take the time to look. [...] As the book slowly fills with colour we are reminded of what we can miss in our fast-paced lives. A visual poem to the importance of small but significant acts of kindness. -- Zoe James-Williams * South Wales Evening Post *
