When an eight-year-old boy helps his uncle at his job as a plasterer, he takes a fancy to his workman's apron with a pocket. As a result of his fascination, his aunt makes him an apron of his own and he spends a few days as his Uncle Adam's assistant. The text is brief and simple but clearly conveys the warmth between the man and his nephew and the child's satisfaction in a job well done. The line/tissue paper illustrations are colourful and somewhat geometric, reminiscent of French Cubist Leger's work featuring labourers. An added bonus is the child-size apron that comes with the book, but the story will be enjoyed with or without the tangible item.
