I did visit a bookshop to see the children's books and I was not disappointed at the strangeness and difference of what was available, there was very little similarity.
One lovely book that I found was ¿Qué quieres, caracol? (What do you want dear Snail?) illustrated by Iranian Illustrator Hamid Reza Akram. This book has beautiful rich and bright illustrations that you can visit again and again and see something new every time.
