Three Sardines on a Bench is a humorous and fantastic children’s picture book. The story centres around three eccentric sardines sharing their views on the world; pontificating on strange matters and purporting to know things that the sardines obviously know nothing about. The sardines begin to even baffle themselves with some of life’s unanswered questions. This small, quirky and precocious book reminds us of the importance of broadening our horizons, seizing life’s every moment and not wasting time. Petite in size, replicating the size of a tin of sardines this is an extraordinary, imaginative and beautiful book.
