THE BOY AND THE MOON is his first children's book.
To say that Carroll is supremely talented would be an understatement, as it is to say such about a lot of children's book author/illustrators. There is so much imagination and wonder in each and every picture for you and your children to gander at as you sit back in bed and enjoy a cuddle and story time.
THE BOY AND THE MOON reminded me of Sendak's WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and some of the work of another amazing author/illustrator I recently discovered, William Joyce.
Certainly check this one out from your local library!
If I had to compare CLARA AND ASHA to another author's books it would have to be David Wiesner. Both capture the wonder and beauty of childhood imagination in a way that just takes you away to amazing places.
I look forward to checking out more Rohmann!
Why don't my kids like Harry Potter? Seriously, someone explain to me how it can be that my two older children (Aidan 10, Dani 7), both avid readers with sparkling imaginations have no interest in Potter? What is up with this?
Twice I have tried to get them to read HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER STONE and twice they have handed it back to me after a couple of chapters. Boring. Not very good. I would rather read something else.
I adore the Potter books. Cherish them more than most of all the books I have ever read.
Something is wrong with my children.
Picked up a cool book today at one of my favourite used book stores today (BMV at Yonge and Eglinton). BREVERTON'S PHANTASMAGORIA (A Compendium of Monsters, Myths and Legends).
This looks like the perfect book for anyone that loves folklore and mythology, as I do. Look for a review sometime in the future!
Terry Breverton also has another cool book called BREVERTON'S NAUTICAL CURIOSITIES.
