    N1 - The authorship and illustration of children’s books provides rich scope for embedding research within practice, and for extending the innovative parameters of that practice. This book explores the child’s concept of imagination and dreams for 3-5 year olds. At this stage in their development they do not yet have a sense of inhibition with regards to any future aspirations, yet they do have an emerging sense of independence and individuality. The intention here is to utilise this aspect sufficiently to produce a book which encourages children to imagine themselves in various roles and situations regardless of any social or cultural differences. The energy and expressive qualities in the artwork is paramount and is intended to stimulate the potentially expressive qualities of a child’s imagination. Colourful spreads show the characters pretending to be anything from an artist to a vet to a deep sea diver. Each visualisation is rich in additional background details, providing further stimulus and talking points. This is the second Poppy and Max book in a series of three, (all published internationally), with toys accompanying the books and the publisher Shogukukan, who publishes these books in Japan, commissioning a series of stories for a Japanese children’s magazine called 'Ohisama' which were published monthly from March 2002-March 2003.
