The 46 little men of the title live in a picture on the nursery wall – until one day the discovery of a rope ladder enables them to escape.
The endpapers give the characters’ names and show you who to look for, while the opening page sets the scene. After that, though, readers have to figure out the multiple storylines on the subsequent wordless pages for themselves.
The cat in the spread below helps emphasise just how small the little men are and provides a sense of scale for the viewer. Although it is certainly a challenge, it is fun to work out what all the characters are doing as each picture changes.
