Spotlight on Books and Illustrators

A new day to talk about picture books and illustrators I admire: Sundays!

And here's the pick of this week: Peter McCarty and his books about two adorable characters. The first book, Hondo and Fabian, came out in 2002 and was a Caldecott Honor Book.  The illustrations are beautiful and original, color pencil on watercolor paper, and the story simple, fun and charming.  In 2007, Peter published a sequel, Fabian escapes, and it's just as wonderful. 
Have you read them?  If not, check them out!
