Children's Book Roundup

Last week I was able to visit the Original Art show at the Society of Illustrators. Some of my favorites included:

The Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale
I honestly LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. It plays homage to the architect greats out there.

The Heart and the Bottle
Really deep, lovely illustrations. Worth a read.

The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According To Susy)
Ed Fotheringham has this great illustrated book! You've seen his illustrations everywhere--I was happy to see them here.

The Fathers Are Coming Home

Some other illustrators I found out about here.  Salley Mavor's stitchable style! Serge Bloch.

Some beautiful quotes that were scattered throughout the exhibit.
"No matter how, when, or where kids devour books- and no matter how illustrators are created- this show is a perfect reminder that great artistic talent and transformatives storytelling are truly what it's all about."
-- Laurent Linu, Chair, The Original Art

"A book with no pictures is like a sky with no clouds."
-- Sergio Ruzzier, Juror, The Original Art
