5. Julia, Child

'Julia, Child' is yet another terrific book by author Kyo Maclear and beautifully illustrated by Julie Morstad. The book, as Kyo says, is "A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up, and mastering the art of having a good time, “Julia, Child” is a fictional tale loosely inspired by the life and spirit of the very real Julia Child — a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter"

10. Christian Robinson

I love the work of Christian Robinson. It's full of joy, colour and wit. Check out his latest book, 'Gaston' (written by Kelly DiPucchio) with its timely tale about a bulldog and a poodle who 'learn that a family is about love, not appearances'...

22. via Fusenews:

  • Jules would never alert you to this herself, but don’t miss this interview with the woman behind the Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast blog as conducted by Phil and Erin E. Stead.  Even if you know Jules you’ll learn something new.  For example, I had no idea she enjoyed Marc Maron’s podcast too.
