The Wonder of Fiona Woodcock’s Picture Books

Fiona Woodcock writes fun books! Check out two of her books for children, which are both perfect for read-aloud!

I discovered Fiona Woodcock’s Hello through Book Riot and could not wait to get my hands on it. I got even more excited when I was able to find a copy of her other book, Look. Both books feature a girl and her younger brother, and all the adventures they have together.

If you enjoy books that celebrate wordplay, you would love these books that were written and illustrated by London-based author-illustrator, Fiona Woodcock. The magic lies in Woodcock’s ability to tell a story using only one word per page. Each word contains the same letter pair that is used throughout the book. Brilliant and charming! Read more about these books below.

In Look, brother and sister take a trip to the zoo. Imagine the wonderful things and animals they would find there! A kangaroo, a cockatoo, a baboon, and even balloons – hooray! This book is filled with words that contain the letter pair OO. Woohoo!

Brother and sister are back! This time they’re ready to have a fun and relaxing summer! First they visit an amusement park where they ride the rollercoaster and check out the hall of mirrors. Then, they go to the beach where they collect shells and run into a jellyfish! This wonderfully created follow-up to Look is brought to you by the letter pair LL. Hello is definitely a must-read for Summer Reading!

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
