no posts lately, blame it on the dull, misty weather, spring yukky, mukky thaw, chemistry in the brain what have you but so in a rut as of late. today this perked me up. found this little jem at my local book store looking for a b-day gift for a 4 year old girl and bought it for myself instead!
written and "illustrated" by Lauren Child the above is my favorite spread of the book.
its interesting how she uses her 2d illustration in her diorama scenes. its a very cute story and lovely little scenes. my one critique is the pics are a bit dark for my taste and thus gives it a sort of weird 1960's ish book feel...
here is the king and queen's bedroom, doesn't that bed just look cozy!
