Hortense And The Shadow by Natalia and Lauren O’Hara

Publication Date: 5th October 2017


Hortense’s shadow follows her everywhere, copies everything she does and never leaves her. She hates it. And it hates her too, doesn’t it? Only when she is rid of it, and finds herself in desperate trouble, does she discover it’s true value.


Stunning, delicate illustrations not only complement, but add depth and narrative to this wonderfully original fairytale. The muted colour palette and white space add to the ethereal feel, with lots of intricate detail to explore and enjoy. The message of true friends always being there for you no matter what shines through.

Great for fans of The Fox And The Star and Under The Same Sky.
