The BookViral Review:

With stunning illustrations and its thought provoking theme The King’s Drapes introduces us to the wonderful words of Jocelyn Tambascio

“Here ye! Here ye! These drapes will not do. Change them. Change them. I must have brand new!” Proclaims the King and here begins a valuable life lesson that in our current times is far too often overlooked.

Children don’t inherently know the difference between wants and needs. They are by nature impulsive and lacking in judgment and books like The King’s Drapes are powerfully poignant for developing young minds and instilling good values.

Jen Born has a unique illustration style. Her quirky birdlike characters perfectly capturing the tone of Tambascio’s tale whilst her striking colour palette adds richness and depth. Combining with her delightful prose to make for a story that looks and reads quite effortlessly but in reality is rather rare. 

Quite often in illustrated children books the words or illustrations will outweigh the other to the detrimental impact of the message but Tambascio has found the perfect balance with her words nicely integrated with her illustrations. And given the endless stream of sophisticated and unrelenting media enticing children to want things they believe they must have The King’s Drapes message couldn’t be more timely.

A beautifully presented book The King’s Drapes is a perfect bedtime story for little ones to read aloud and is recommended without reservation.

Enthralling in thought and execution Bending delivers a unique and highly intriguing foray into the realms of YA Fantasy. A genre sadly populated by far too many shallow unexciting characters and narratives that seem to plod through recycled storylines but one in which he’s proved himself to be wholly original.
