Jim Medway - Playing Out

I really enjoyed Jim Medway's 'Playing Out'. It's for sale here, from Blank Slate.

It's a really good looking book, nice and big, like a European album size. It's about three kids, Connor, Kieran and Jamal, wandering around Manchester at the end of the Summer holidays. Connor is the youngest and is going to be starting big school after the holidays. They walk around the shops, getting thrown out of most places for not buying anything and look at all the 'weirdoes'. The drawings great and its cool to recognise all the places. I always like Jim's cat people and the book really captures the particular day in time very well. Highly recommended.
