29. Reza Yousefzadeh

Published by Shabaviz Books in Iran, 'Speed' is written by  Kambiz Kakavand and beautifully illustrated by Reza Yousefzadeh. I'd love to see more creative abstraction like this in children's illustrations…

37. 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.

41. The Artist and the King



"In a nod to art's twin powers of subversion and of transformation, a very small painter makes a hardhearted king cry—and then smile." --Kirkus Reviews

49. The Big Book of Slumber

HARDCOVER; Published: 4/18/2014
ISBN: 978-0-8028-5439-1
26 Pages
Ages 3-7
Trim Size, in inches: 9X12.375

Giovanna Zoboli and illustrator Simona Mulazzani team up to create a peaceable kingdom, with handsome animals and large, richly saturated pages. In THE BIG BOOK OF SLUMBER, the animal world beds down—camels on bunk beds, a snake on an elongated twin bed, a monkey snug in the treetops next to his banana. 

What I appreciate most about the book is how easily worlds flow together—human and animal, fantasy and reality—just like dreams themselves. 

THE BIG BOOK OF SLUMBER, with its graceful rhythm, is just what a lullaby book should be—lyrical, cozy, and reassuring.





Thank you to Eerdmans Books for Young Readers.
