Me and Toby had this as our picture as we loved the way the illustrator has left the background entirely white, meaning that it is up to your imagination to put the children in a specific place... (Penny)
Toby edit-
The characters and props help to tell us more about the 'place', for example the children holding the tree trunk (just how strong are these kids?) give us a clue as to where they may be, maybe in a around a forest area?
Another point is that the illustrator relies on our familiarity with these signifiers to help tell us more of the 'place'.
