Ryan wears a tiny crown, Wesley is dramatic, Ellen uses a lot of electricity and Celine lives in the sky. Names can mean a whole heck of a lot, and in 'the Untold Stories Of Our Names' illustrator Lio Yeung has created over 200 imaginary alphabetical characters with names that deviate brilliantly from the run-of-the-mill definitions. Bold, bright and full of fun, Lio's illustrations are a real joy to flip through, each character's story being told in a 4 panel comic strip. Great for parents-to-be (the book has a glossary of 500 names and their meanings in the back) and super fun for kids learning about the world they live in.
A really different book from Victionary, but one that keeps all of their quality and attention to detail to the fore - this is a beautifully published sturdy hardback and one that you'll keep going back to.
