Show Me a Shadow


A girl and her cat become curious about their shadows – the way they copy their movements, yet change shape and size. What is the secret behind them? They decide to grab a torch and start experimenting…


Hye Won Yeom’s expressive, delightful illustrations remind me of Raymond Briggs’ style. The lively text explains the fun science behind shadows and takes the fear out of darkness for young readers, making a game of the interplay of light and shade.

Show Me a Shadow is the perfect book to explore as the winter nights draw in.


Show Me a Shadow, by Hee Jeong Yun and Hye Won Yeum (translated into English by Grace Bowman), published by Ginger Books, is available now.
