Illustration: Olivier Schrauwen’s magnificent illustrated novel, My Boy

What an honour it is to be alive in the same century as talent such as Ollie Schrauwen. He flew into my life back in May 2013 and has resided in the penthouse of my brain ever since, evidently working hard on this majestic new book. My Boy follows a small, strange baby through his life spent with his exuberant, wealthy father and is a testament to Ollie’s talent in that from page one of this hardback treasure you are completely and irrevocably immersed in a different era and family. The fact that it’s split up into a series of chapter resembling life events makes it the perfect, readable book for anyone wary of the format of a graphic novel. In my opinion, this is the best kind of fantasy, fiction and illustration all rolled into one and will put the rest of your books to shame.
