    What is this picture book about? 

    Wandering the streets of her local village during the pandemic lockdown, April develops an unwavering curiosity for what is happening in the windows of her neighbouring homes. Like a short film depicting the fascinating lives of others, gently framed by the unique architecture of their homes, April's Window is a visual and literary masterpiece. Written by Canadian author, Georgina Le Flufy, and illustrated by the globally-renowned, Francisco Fonseca, this picture book will captivate readers of all ages.


    An excerpt from the story

    Square window, wide window, window up high.

    My window, your window, windows with blinds.

    Windows with curtains and windows with lights,

    Windows with sleeping cats curled up inside.

    Windows where people are watering plants,

    Windows where people are learning to dance,

    Learning to sew, learning to cook, falling

    In love with the words of a book. The sounds

    Of a song that float through

    the air, the smell of people

    cooking in homes everywhere...
