They Say:

Irish author-illustrator, Yasmeen Ismail, is a rising star in the picture book world. Her debut book Time for Bed, Fred! won the V & A Best Illustrated Book Award, was longlisted for the Kate Greenway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Award. Specs for Rex is her second title to be published by Bloomsbury.

Specs for Rex is a beautifully illustrated and charming story about the positive side of being a little bit different to the rest of the crowd. Guaranteed to leave all readers wanting a pair of their very own specs. 

- Specs for Rex is full of energetic, vibrant and stunning artwork.

- This book promotes the positive aspects of coping with being a little bit different.

- Rex will strike a chord with all children who have to wear glasses - and their parents!

Judges Comments:

"Cute little Rex will win your heart and he especially strikes a chord with chidlren who wear glasses. However, that is not a prerequisite, as the illustrations alone are worth buying this book for. Beautiful and a fun read."
