A Ludicrous Library - WIN

I really like this latest Ravensburger jigsaw that has recently landed my way, as I think it is particularly cool for young teenagers. It is called The Ludicrous Library and has 500 pieces, enough to keep boys and girls intensely occupied over a couple of days, or something that could take the whole of the holiday to complete if they are allowed table space so they can dip in and out of the activity.

The picture conjures lots of thoughts: old whimsical stories, dreamlike imaginings, mad professors, flamboyance, scholarly interests, master crafted construction, Harry Potter characters, and, yes there is definitely a flavour of the Hogwarts about it.

It is a quirky library scene with lots of angled stairways and various hidey holes housing hundreds of antiquarian, heavily bound books that are a little skew whiff in their positioning, and it doesn’t matter one bit that there appears to be no right way up to the books, the layout or to the puzzle itself – a great image for jigsaw construction.

The artwork is by one of my favourite artists whose work I have come to know well, Colin Thompson. Thompson has included little strange, ‘off the wall’ illustrations which he is really good at i.e. books with legs, monks with beaks, little cloaked figures all of which would appeal to the interests of a lot to young people. I've seen it selling on Amazon
