I hadn’t planned a post for today, but last evening two treasures arrived for me and I just couldn’t resist. Look what was in the mail!
by this talented team:
Julie Larios is one of my favorite children’s poets for both the wit and wonder she brings to her work, so I have been coveting these two books for a long time. And what can you say about the shapes and colors and creatures of Julie Paschkis’s paintings besides SIGH.
Anyway, these two books constituted our bedtime stories for last night. Of course I ended with the poem “Troll” from Imaginary Menagerie because what good mamma doesn’t tuck her little guys in right after telling them about boy-eating trolls?
Thank you, Julie and Julie!
I will treasure these books!
Diane has the roundup over at Random Noodling.
