Fantastic reviews for Walker picture books

We are delighted to see three fantastic reviews of Walker picture books appear on The Guardian this week.

Du Iz Tak? by Carson Ellis.

“This story is written in “bug language”, an idea that borders on lunacy but is in practice a joy and a quirky triumph. It is enormous fun reading this book aloud and trying to decipher exchanges between talkative insects.” - The Guardian

Patrick and the President by Ryan Tubridy, with illustrations by PJ Lynch.

“The story of President Kennedy’s visit to County Wexford in Ireland in 1963 ... what makes it winning is the sense that it is a true story and the tremendous sense of the period brought home in Lynch’s accomplished, emotionally acute illustrations.” - The Guardian

Penguin Problems by Jory John, with illustrations by Lane Smith.

“A small philosophy manual for readers of all ages is provided by the wonderfully original Penguin Problems.” - The Guardian

All of these brilliant picture books are out now, and you can find them at your local bookshop.
