Passionate about picturebooks. Welcome to my blog about picturebooks in ELT. As an art form it hinges on the interdependence of pictures and words, on the simultaneous display of two facing pages, and on the drama of the turning page. My intention is to discuss picturebooks, in particular the pictures in them! Because, in ELT we tend to select picturebooks because they contain words our students might know. I plan to write something a couple of times a month, sharing what I discover in my readings; describe new titles I come across; discuss particular illustrators and their styles and generally promote the picture in picturebooks. Thank you for those pointers and questions to ask our young co-readers.

A Cloud in the Shape of a Girl is a poignant novel about three generations of the Wise family—Evelyn, Laura, and Grace—as they hunt for contentment amid chaos of their own making. We see these women and their trials, small and large: social slights and heartbreaks; marital disappointments and infidelities; familial dysfunction; mortality. Spanning from World War II to the present, Thompson reveals a matrilineal love story that is so perfectly grounded in our time—a story of three women regressing, stalling, and yes, evolving, over decades. One of the burning questions she asks is: by serving her family, is a woman destined to repeat the mistakes of previous generations, or can she transcend the expectations of a place, and a time? Can she truly be free?

    She is in hospice care with her daughter, Laura, at her side. The end result is much destruction and pain, although this dark, powerfully honest story also has an inner light that shines in glimpsed moments of courage. Women portrayed in this book are resilient, making the best of the lives they end up living. It is possible, even, to rebuild a shattered life and emerge from the shadows of secrets. 🧟‍♂️
