After reading a fascinating short chapter 'Decoding the Images: Illustration and Picture Books' by Perry Nodelman, in 'Understanding Children's Literature' edited by Peter Hunt, I was so impressed, I had to acquire a copy of 'Words about Pictures' and learn more. It has not disappointed me. With decisive commentry and lots of reference to the opinions of others, Nodelman unpicks the psychological reading appeal of pictures in a book. With so much around us that is pictorial, from movies and television to advertising to observing life in general, I believe being more aware of what frozen moments of perception are actually telling the viewer is quite an art. Everywhere, there are hidden messages we do or do not pick up, consciously and subliminally. A great contribution to my questioning journey.....and looking for more!!
