Owen Davey's Foxley's Feast

Published late last year, but only just acquired, is this excellent wordless picture book by a recent graduate of University of Falmouth; Owen Davey. Davey who was highly commended in the Macmillan prize recently.
It is certainly unusual for a children's picture book publisher to take a risk on a wordless narrative so well done to Templar Books.
It is charmingly illustrated with a very nice "retro" colour palette, and also has a lovely print quality, printed as it is on uncoated stock. Have a look at more of Owen Davey's work on his site - link off the title.
