Even though this is a kid's book it's going on the 2009 booklist, since it is so pretty! While babysitting last night I read some books when the kiddos were asleep. I found this gem called Henry and the Buccaneer Bunnies by Carolyn Crimi.
I had to look through the book a second time, just to analyze, dissect, drool and be in awe of the illustrations. They are created with gauche and colored pencil. The artist's name is John Manders.
Now it's time to go to the library and check out more of his books. Looking at his art reminded me of how much fun gauche can be and made me want to paint.
