If you’re looking for something unique and truly brilliant to read, pick up Du Iz Tak? by Carson Ellis. The story can be told through the illustrations alone, or in conjunction with the text. The unfamiliarity of the language used encourages readers to lookout for details, take their time on every page, and intrigues with a sense of mystery. Words are hilariously funny when read aloud, and those who want to have a go, will enjoy trying to decipher what is said. Du Iz Tak? Rup furt? Unk ribble! Booby voobeck! The story incorporates humour, tragedy, triumph, teamwork, growth, change, the passing of time and new beginnings. Ellis’ illustrations are imaginative and beautiful. Du Iz Tak? is a multifaceted masterpiece. Su!
