Hands up if you buy a picture book for a child based on the illustrations....I thought so!
We love books around here and we have a huge picture book library. We have made many book decisions based solely on who illustrated it. Favourite illustrators such as Jeanie Baker (love! love! love her!), Julie Vivas, Freya Blackwood, Bruce Whatley and Alison Lester to name a few.
My Little Bookcase has collaborated with 12 of Australia's finest picture book illustrators to produce a beautiful and unique calendar. It is called An Illustrated Year. A January-December 2013 calendar.
