About this deal

Piece by piece, she and Matt expand their new world with popsicle-stick bridges and scrap-paper boats. Matt has moved three times with his family and now they have moved to a place filled with mud and water and no trees.

Homeware - Bathroom – Matalan

Creating cute and cosy outfits for your newest family member is easy with our baby girls’ clothing online. A stranger comes with odds and ends as Mattland grows with a factory, weather station ( broken key) railroad ( pine needles) and more. A clever combination of first person illustration and third-person narrative sweep us from the bleak friendlessness of a half-built subdivision to the sunny satisfaction of a job well done in this wordless triumph of teamwork and imagination. Matt wanders about outdoors by himself, finds a stick and uses it to make a line which gets filled with water and becomes a river. The story protagonist is Matt, a boy who is new to town and starts constructing his own Mattland in the mud outside.This book is about the power of creativity, the strength of play and the formation of connections without trying. Matt continues to develop Mattland, now with the assistance of an outsider – a silent little girl who brings him popsicle sticks, pine cones, coloured pebbles and bits of tile.

Boys 4 to 13 Years – Matalan

Through the inventor’s eyes, Mattland no longer looks like the objects it is made from, but what the young boy imagines the objects to be. So when Matt picks up a stick, he is tempted to break it or throw it, but instead he starts to draw in the mud. However, she also does a good job at showing that sometimes we need to be willing to open up and let others in if we want to make friends.Petričić illustrates from Matt’s viewpoint, the pictures showing his arms in front of him while he is creating this emerging world. When disaster strikes the tiny world, Matt's own world has expanded enough for lots of hands to be there to help.
