Lili by Wen Dee Tan

Have a look at the beautiful magpie Wen Dee Tan illustrated for me.


Lili is an ordinary little girl. Well, except for one thing, she has fiery red hair. Lili finds it hard to make friends with her fiery red hair, but one day, Lili finds the village children lost in the deep dark woods and her bravery (and hair) leads them all home safely. Lili is a beautiful story of overcoming rejection and being accepted for who you are – something that will resonate with children and adults everywhere. Wen Dee Tan’s stunning and unusual illustrations will captivate with every read.

The illustrations by Wen Dee Tan are beautiful to look at. Surrounded by plenty of white space, the sketched illustrations breathe on the page, allowing the red of Lili’s hair to burn on the pages.

Wen Dee Tan’s illustrations are truly unique, entrancing and extraordinary to experience in the picture book form.

This is my book of the week!
