As a global pandemic, Covid-19 affected the lives of millions of people across the world. This book gives a child’s eye view from Amber Zaman of what happened in the UK, captured in eleven beautifully illustrated poems in collaboration with acclaimed Illustrator Ursula Hurst. From closed schools, to fun on Zoom, a shortage of hand sanitiser and the hope of rainbows, enjoy a unique perspective on the main event of 2020.
Eight year old Amber from Yorkshire wanted to write and illustrate her own book. Her dream has finally come true. During lockdown , Amber used poetry and illustration as a means of expressing how she felt about what was happening, developing poems that capture her life during the first four months of the UK’s Covid -19 Lockdown, alongside illustrations that show a wish for a brighter future. Amber has worked with illustrator Ursula Hurst, creating artwork that looks professional yet maintains the freshness and innocence of Ambers work.
