More and More and More by Ian Mutch

Thu 14 February 2019

More than anything else, Henry Harper loves collecting. One day he finds Kate and she loves collecting too. Together they collect more and more and MORE…until their obsession causes everything to change.

Written and illustrated by Ian Mutch, this book will make you chuckle AND think. As we ride the current KonMari-craze wave, against a backdrop of the ongoing War on Waste, there couldn't be a better time for this cautionary tale about friendship, sustainability and rampant consumerism.

Born in Africa and now based in Western Australia, Ian Mutch is an Aussie award-winning artist who draws inspiration from the wild creatures and landscapes of his childhood. Using acrylics, aerosol and inks, Ian creates beautiful works on paper, canvas, wood and walls.

To read along with the illustrations, get your own copy of the book at your favourite bookstore, or online at Fremantle PressMore and More and More is published by Fremantle Press.
