About this deal

Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. Then again, the rich colour contrasts are beautiful, just as we love in Britta Teckentrup’s art work.

My first impression was of the bright and beautiful neon Leon finding a welcoming place in the world with a ton of fun reader interaction. This book didn't go in the direction I was expecting as I fear the underlying message may be that to fit in and feel "comfortable" a person needs to stay with people who are like them. In this delightful interactive book, filled with vibrant neon artwork, children can help Leon on his journey by counting his steps, sending him to sleep and giving him lots of reassurance when he’s feeling down.Falls into the ranks of tracks like “Dance” by ESG, “Eisbaer” by Grauzone, “Damaged Goods” by Gang of Four or like the album description says Kleenex.

The book has an interactive element as it asks the reader to guess what page they will turn as they go to the sandy desert and the big, gray, rocky mountains. From time to time, we would like to keep you up to date with news about Beyond the Stork and special offers. Alternatively, why not try an interactive story from another author: I adored This book just stole my cat! He left Europe for Jamaica some time and changed his artist name to King Lion and was even more inspired by reggae than before, later going back to Europe and some club hits from France to Scandinavia.In this book, for example, you are asked to guess what colour the chameleons are going to change into next and tell Leon what he should do. The questioning in the book would encourage the reader to think and makes the book more active and the illustrations are nice. But in the context of a child relating to the story, it promotes isolating and excluding others solely if they do not look a certain way or cannot do specific things. Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example.

The title to be read and discussed is sign-posted and on sale for the whole of the previous month (with a discount for those who make it known they intend to come) and everybody is welcome, whether first-timer, part-timer or regular-timer. It really plucks at the ol’ heartstrings (in a funny way), and makes it all the more satisfying when he finally finds his place in the world – and his “perfect match”.After 17 years in the UK, Britta now lives and works in Berlin with her Scottish husband and their son Vincent. The Neon Leon debut album was released in 1983 (funded by Mick Jagger) as a Swedish-only LP but featured Blondie’s Clem Burke as well as notorious KBD star Snuky Tate, and showcases a sold late 70’s Stones vibe perfectly ripe for radio consumption, in a better world, that is… fast forward to the 21st century and Leon still holds it down in Germany these days, still performs occasionally, and we’re extremely proud to finally get these 70s-80s era recordings back into circulation, so make sure to check out both of Neon Leon’s books (Fast Track to Hell and New York City Babylon) crank it up, and don’t ever look back! It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you.
