Chalk Boy

Barnaby is a pavement artist. 
This morning he started drawing me. 
I have a head that can think, eyes that can see, ears that can hear and legs that can run. 
Best of all, I have a heart that can feel. 
Thank you, Barnaby. 

Read by singer Isaiah Firebrace Chalk Boy is a soulful and heartwarming story about what happens when a pavement artist's drawing comes to life.
Award-winning writer Margaret Wild compresses epic themes into a poetic, poignant story, vividly brought to life by Mandy Ord's distinctive, dynamic art.
