3 low-res sample pages from the animated version of Mr.Watt (Grumpy man of metal) and the Lost Factories.
Mr. Watt, the Grumpy Man of Metal, has lost his sparkle, his inspiration for making things. It's run away! His journey to find it again takes him past the remains of industrial heritage; old factories and potteries, textile mills and locomotive sheds and lots of references to fairy tales and children’s stories that both adults and children will recognise. Fun for all ages, this book comes in two versions, one of them with simple animations and sounds; both versions come with an interactive voice-over button to help your child read along if they want to.
Mr.Watt's sparkle is a metaphor for the decline of industry and crafts; the fairy tale references remind us of the objects that fascinated us in the stories we read as children.
