The Unicorn Gets a Puddle!?

Today, based on past purchases, Amazon saw fit to tell me that Mo Willems was coming out with a new book, The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?
The outrage and jealousy of Mo’s iconic pigeon protagonist is palpable. Over the course of the day, I coincidentally received several other news on children’s books and illustrations. And because the sun, skirts, and popsicles are making their way out of a long wintry hibernation, it feels right to sit cross-legged on the floor and open up some larger-than-average book with bright colors and plenty of space for imagining. Here are a few:
Author David McKee gives his best tips for how to draw an elephant. (Read the whole story here):
And Sam Bradley with the Picture Book Report project (a group of 15 artists who illustrate the books they’re reading) chooses a scene from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book where NoBody Owens meets a friend.
A nod to childhood.
