The Checked Trousers
 Nina Vavouri

28pp.
Papadopoulos, 2005
ISBN: 960-412-423-4

Nina Vavouri’s entertaining picture book The Checked Trousers gently contrasts selfishness and a negative outlook with a willingness to make the most of circumstances.
A pair of yellow and black checked trousers in a shop window are longing to be worn when Eleni, a pampered girl who already has more clothes than she knows what to do with, talks her mother into buying them. For a while she wears nothing else, but she soon tires of them, and the trousers end up in a bin destined for the Third World. The trousers always find something to complain about, unlike a blouse in the same consignment that resolutely looks on the bright side of travel and change. Eventually, the trousers are chosen by Fatima, a no-nonsense African girl, who cherishes them and wouldn’t dream of wearing anything else.
Eliza Vavouri’s cheerful illustrations – close-ups at unexpected angles – highlight this upbeat story.
