Illustration Friday | Theater

Puppet theater! A gentler version of "Little Red Riding Hood" for your entertainment.

In my opinion, wolves get an unfair bad rap...

Teatro de marionetes! Uma versão mais gentil do "Chapeuzinho Vermelho" para o seu divertimento.

Na minha opinião, os lobos tem uma má reputação injusta...

For some, anything is possible. So go ahead and reach for the stars :-)

Para alguns, tudo é possível. Então vá em frente e alcançe as estrelas

Illustration Friday | Fleeting

Especially now that spring is here, we should savor those rare fleeting moments of peace and relaxation in our busy days. If you can do so with a good friend, all the better!

Especialmente agora que a primavera chegou, devemos apreciar aqueles raros momentos de paz e tranquilidade nos nossos dias cheios. E se você puder fazê-lo com um bom amigo, melhor ainda!

Project Pit Bull is Open!

© Stacey Hsu

Here's your chance to own an original paperclay sculpture by Stacey Hsu and participate in a great endevour: Project Pit Bull!  100% of the profits will go to sponsor a pit bull at the Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue.  I could not resist and have already purchased one of these for my collection (the adorable little lady on the top right, Munchkin.)  

Make sure to visit Stacey's blog and shop to learn all about it!

Spotlight on Books and Illustrators

Diane Goode, an author and Caldecott Honor illustrator, has a delightful and distinctive style. With sure, expressive lines, watercolor and gouache, she creates engaging, fun illustrations that capture the feel and charm of bygone eras.  On her website, you can see a list of all her books (more than 47 picture books!) and go on a tour of her studio.  It's a real treat!

Look for her books at your public library!
