    One thought on “Clown”

    1. I have actually heard of Quentin Blake’s works from the many Roald Dahl books I have read as a child and I was actually surprised to read a book written by Quentin Blake himself. “Clown” is a children’s book by Quentin Blake and it is about how a small toy clown comes to life and tries to help the other toys that were thrown in the trash can find a new home. “Clown” is a cute story that children who love reading about toys will enjoy, but the illustrations might take some time gettin [...]

    2. Reading this story with our girls was somewhat of an act of bravery for me because I HATE CLOWNS (shiver). Ever since I read It by Stephen King (and even worse, saw Tim Curry portraying Pennywise the clown on the made-for-tv miniseries), I have been petrified of clowns. And seeing the movie Poltergeist when I was a child didn't help. I don't even want to take our girls to the circus, although I mainly will hide behind the veil of an animal rights protest in that case and not just my fear of the [...]

    3. I really wanted to like this book. I definitely tried to. However, I honestly got a little bit lost reading this book. I think that I would have liked it more if there was a story to go along with it. I didn't care for the art style. The style of this book was very sketchy, and used what looked like watercolor and pen. It seemed a bit busy, and I couldn't focus on what was going on. Particularly with the amount of detail that was in the background that was in some of the pictures. When I was abl [...]

    4. Clown by Quentin Blake is a wordless book about a stuffed clown who comes alive after being thrown into the trash with his stuffed animal friends, and has an adventure trying to find a home for himself and his discarded friends. After Clown and his stuffed animal friends are tossed into the trash, Clown finds shoes and runs around the city trying to get help for his discarded friends. He approaches a couple children, is put into a costume contest, brought home by a child, but tossed away out the [...]

    5. A toy clown and some other toys are thrown away. The clown comes to life and ventures out into the city to find someone to save the other toys-- but no one seems to want old, worn out toys. Clown is not discouraged. His determination and devotion to his friends is inspiring.Blake's squiggly ink lines and water-colored illustrations are not only brilliant but are fascinating enough to capture the action, emotions, and message of Clown’s story without words. **A side note: I was eight-years-old [...]

    6. A cute wordless picture book that follows the adventures of a clown that is tossed in the trash with a few of his toy friends.

    7. In this book, a toy clown gets thrown away. He gets out of the trash and thrown around by people. In the end, the message is about recycling toys rather than throwing them away.

    8. A story without words by the guy who illustrated all the Roald Dahl books. My four year old 'read' me this story, wonderful.

    9. I loved this book! A visual narrative with no words used except for the title. The author creates effect by the choice of colour used in each illustration- when uncertainty/fear/sadness wanted to be portrayed the colours on the page were mostly greys. When happiness wanted to be expressed the colours on the page were bright and vibrant. The author allows the reader to follow the story easily by the spacing of the pictures- when the reader's attention needs to be drawn to a specific picture it is [...]

    10. An epic. You only have to look at the number of times the book has been checked out of the library. Must have been an inspiration for toy story. Clown's search for a home for himself and his friends touches all the buttons. Reading it ( reading ??!! ) you get the confidence a good picture book inspires in the reader / parent / teacher / performer to tell / share / explore. It's all there in the pictures.

    11. This book has no words, just beautiful illustrations. The pictures throughout the book tell a story that anybody can understand, in this case there are no need for words. The story is based around a bunch of toys that are thrown away in a bin, and the clown decides to go on an adventure. The clown goes in search of a new family so he and his friends can be loved once more and the group of toys can remain together and continue their friendship. The clown, the main character is a constant figure t [...]

    12. ‘Clown’ illustrated by the infamous Quentin Blake is an endearing story about a toy clown who is put in the rubbish. Escaping from the bin he’s put in, Clown goes on an adventure through the city to find a new owner. On the way he meets a young girl and explains his story, she decides to take him home but her mother refuses to let her keep him so he is thrown out again. After surviving a dog he is then thrown out again only to land in the bedroom of a babysitter and a baby who can’t stop [...]

    14. An adorable story about a clown that is tossed out. Clown gets out of the trash can and then begins a search for someone to rescue his friends.The sneakers are adorable!I love Abigail's theme posted on Children's Books, December 2011 Toys discussion: "by helping others, we often help ourselves as well." The theme has been done before. I remember using the filmstrip ofThe Night After Christmas for a story time. I think this is a simpler story, but wouldn't work for me now with groups around 30-50 [...]

    15. This is a wordless book about a toy clown who gets thrown out and separated from his fellow toys in the trash can. He wanders through the city trying to find a way back to them. A heart-warming ending provides a satisfying conclusion to a story that ambles along. Blake's signature sketchy style captures the floppiness of the clown and the chaos of the city (NYC?). Themes about the meaning of "home" and wants vs needs would make for good discussion.

    16. Brilliant. Why isn't this at any of my local libraries?! Any child over 3 could 'read' this to you and will completely understand the concern of the clown for his friends - though kids will wonder why anyone would throw a gorgeous toy in the bin?!. The moral compass point of helping each other to help ourselves is gentle and not too didactic. Brilliant. (Perhaps Shaun Tan read Clown when he was younger.)

    17. Really enjoyed the illustrations throughout the book, story follows a toy who was chucked away and so goes looking for a new owner. The clown gets into mischief however has a happy ending. Children can relate to this wordless picture book by wondering what happens to their unwanted toys. Cross curricular:- Art, observational drawings of children's own toys. - English, diary entry of how you would feel if you were the toy who was thrown out and unwanted.

    18. This was the first book by Quentin Blake that didn't disappoint me. Interestingly enough it's also the first book without any text. I think it's pretty clear that illustration is Blake's strong point. Writing and story-telling, not so much.

    19. I found it kind of meh, storywise. Blake is funny, but he's kind a Tim Burton-esque one-trick pony in his aesthetic style. Having seen his work regularly since I learned how to read, I think I was already over this book before I read it. Not for me, but actually pretty good, objectively speaking.

    20. This book has no words! It's a picture book that's only pictures. I'm not so keen on only pictures, but the story is so cool that I ended up liking this book very, very much.It's all about trash and dumpster diving and helping others and taking care of each other. Sigh. This is a good one.

    21. My daughter was open-minded about the book, but couldn't figure out the message of it on her own. I had a bit of a time with it too as the artwork was too busy or there were sometimes too many pictures on a page. Disappointing for a book on the 1,001 Books To Read Before You Grow Up list.

    22. Clown's adventures begin when he is thrown in the trash with his stuffed animal friends. He encounters people as he explores the city and finds a new home with a loving family.The detained ink and water color illustrations shape a clear narrative.
