Location based picture books 🗺
We’re currently holidaying down in Cornwall and I spotted this book in the gift shop at St Michael’s Mount. It caught my eye for a few reasons:
1) Mousehole is the area we’re staying in and it got me wondering about the idea of niche location based picture books.
2) The story centres around the Minack Theatre (where we’re going tomorrow). Our home town has a castle which could be ripe for a good story.
3) Does a specific location based story alienate a core audience? Or would story and illustration win out in appealing to people?
So lots of thoughts based on one little book, so do let me know if you have any to share. Time to sit back and ponder whilst I stare out to sea 🌊 .
