I love the sound of this picture book. It’s interesting isn’t it, when you think that some pb’s have incredibly detailed art work, yet some have minimalist illustrations like this one. But the illustrations still contribute to each type of book in a special way.

Hi Andrea and Mark,

I really need to find this book now. This is the type of book I love. You guys describe it perfectly, I can already picture it in my head and it’s adorable! :o)

I wish there were lots of more picture books like this one. Thanks for sharing this and I will add it first on my list of books to get.

Take care,
