From the bestselling illustrator Peter Frankopan's The Silk Roads comes a witty, magnificently-produced book, playing with the idea of "sorting".

The animal kingdom, modes of transport, musical instruments, art and architectural movements, cloud classification ... anything and everything can be sorted into groups! Framed by a charming narrative about a father and son, this is a book about categories; on a journey into town, a boy called Arvo explores the many ways in which we classify the world around us, to charming - and often amusing - effect.

One of a Kind marks Neil Packer's debut as an author-illustrator, following his extraordinary artwork for Peter Frankopan's The Silk Roads. With a charming text and breathtaking pictures, this story deserves its title: a true original by a remarkable talent.

Reviews

A magnificent book that is as captivating and witty as it is beautifully illustrated. I loved it. * Peter Frankopan *
It is clearly a great achievement with some incredibly beautiful page design. * Alexis Deacon *
Oh wow, Neil! Oh WOW! It's wonderful. * Gillian Cross, adapter of the text of The Iliad and The Odyssey *
Wow! This is an out of the box quirky stunner. One of Kind by Neil Packer is a charming story about sorting and classifying the world around but ultimately it's a story about what makes us...us. The amazing art invites hours of page-gazing. Double Wow!!! * Simon Smith, Primary School Principal *
Recommended for any library. Readers will understand the basics of genealogy through a straightforward narrative. * School Library Journal *
