When a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle mysteriously arrives in the post, Kitty, Katy, Mum and Dad begin putting it together in winter at the edges. As in all of creator Bob Graham’s work, the beauty here is in the details, with visual perspectives that offer a bird’s-eye view or take us underfoot, wordless sequences letting us in on a secret. Jigsaw: A Puzzle in the Post is read by Roby Favretto.
In this heartbreaking and heart-warming story, Zeno Sworder reflects on his own migrant parents’ sacrifices to create a universal story about what it means to give to those you love. My Strange Shrinking Parents: A Tall Tale draws from the sacrifices his Chinese mother made to raise her young family in a small country town, Sworder’s drawings are full of beautiful detail and fairytale settings that explore his own journey from child to parent. Read by Trystan Go.
