  • Short Description
33 of the world's most noted illustrators create art based on a favorite childhood text, in a tribute to the art of children's book illustration.

American Library Association Notable Books List selection

In this lavish tribute to the art of children's book illustration thirty-three of the world's most noted illustrators have created original works of art based on a favorite childhood text. They have donated the use of their art exclusively for this book so that a royalty on all sales can be given to the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY).

This organization, at the heart of whose mandate lies the promotion of books of the highest quality, has been honoring illustrators through the Hans Christian Andersen Awards for many decades. It is in honor of this work that many of the world's greatest illustrators for children, from Andersen winners to unknown but talented newcomers, have agreed to participate in this celebratory anthology.

PATRICIA ALDANA was born and brought up in Guatemala. She came to Canada as an adult and founded Groundwood Books, of which she was the publisher for thirty-five years.

...a true treasury of stimulating plenty... - Toronto Star

...a vibrant testament to the range and resonance of contemporary children's book illustration all around the globe. - Publishers Weekly

...teens with artistic aspirations [and] adult collectors of children's literature...will marvel at work by emerging new talents as well as familiar artists... - Booklist

A dazzling variety of styles...is on full display....this visual feast more than satisfies. - Horn Book

The beauty of the calligraphy in Japanese, Hebrew, and other scripts adds to the visual and cultural appeal of the book, while hand-printed texts by such illustrators as Quentin Blake are an essential element of the illustration. - Quill & Quire

This handsome offering is evidence of the universality of children's literature and the eloquence of the picture book. - School Library Journal

This is a book to inspire future illustrators and writers - and possibly peacemakers. - Globe and Mail
