    One thought on “The World According to Warren”

    1. I love crossovers. I love seeing characters pop up in another work, perhaps seen from a different point of view or perspective, allowing a much richer experience of a certain fictional universe. Rhubarb is one of my favourite Aussie adult novels of all time, written by Craig Silvey of Jasper Jones fame. The story is about Eleanor Rigby (ah, look at all the lonely people), a blind young woman guided through her dark world by the perpetually protective and hungry Warren. So I was over the moon to [...]

    2. The World According to Warren is a children’s book by Craig Silvey, but it is a book that adults will also enjoy, especially if they have read his earlier work, Rhubarb. Warren is the guide dog from that book, a guide dog with attitude. This charming book is beautifully illustrated by Sonia Martinez. The littlies can do their own “Where’s Waldo” by looking for Ewan the Hermit Crab on each page. A delight to read for all ages.

    3. This is a gorgous book. Really cute. Warren is a little pup, always getting into trouble, when he meets Eleanor. He becomes very protective of her and learns to ignore distractions. We should all listen to Warren, because although he is only a dog, he has a simple view of how our lives could be improved. And he is right. The world would be a better place.

    4. An excellent book. There are so many layers to this text, that it would be a great addition to an English or Literacy class. Kids love to look for the visual references related to Eleanor Rigby and to that extent some Beatles song lyrics that are embedded within the illustrations, which work so well with this story overall. Have a read, and you will not regret it!

    5. That wasweird? I think it was supposed to be sad, but everything other than the story itself was funny, even the bits about the author and illustrator and the title page, so I'm not feeling the sadness. Quite a shot from Jasper Jones, though.
