Wordless Storybook Pages 15 and 16

In 2021 I completed a wordless artist book for my little granddaughter, who was about a year old at the time. I produced it by converting a discarded kid’s library book, using the same process I’ve used for similar books in the past.

Look here if you want to see more about how I make these books and to view one of my past books.

This particular volume does have a story, though. I had been working on it off and on for a long time and getting nowhere. Other projects kept coming along. One day I took it out to see about finishing it up and to consider what I might write to accompany the images. It struck me that it was fine just as it was, without words.

And I thought my granddaughter might like it when she is a little older, and she can make up stories to go with the pictures herself.

Like the content, the cover has no words. The book has no title. I guess it can be called whatever the reader wants.

Here are the next two pages. Want to make up your own story?

    A Poor Decision, Even in the Light of Day

    She was never really alone
    while walking through the park
    at night. Until she saw his silhouette
    leaning against the tree,
    and it was too late.

    Have you showed this to children of the age group you’re aiming at? How did they react? I understand that you have a particular reader in mind for this book, but it would still be interesting to hear what other children’s take on it is.

    Jack called. “I’ve found the perfect place. Come and look”. Eve threw on her old rain mack and hurried through the park to catch the bus. What was Jack going to show her this time? Hopefully it wasn’t going to cause the same stress as before….

      Now I’m wondering, to whom will it cause stress? Jack, or Eve? And of course…what is he going to show her? And the “perfect place”? I’m delighted the pictures have raised so many questions. And I want to know more about Jack and Eve…
