The imaginative, whimsical art that will be featured on the covers and interior of the 2017 Winter Catalog is from I LOVE A BOOK by Joe Rhatigan; illustrated by Olga and Aleksey Ivanov.
About the book …
At once inspirational, silly, and fun, this lavishly illustrated picture book is a celebration of reading and children’s marvelous capacity for enjoyment and imagination.
This is a celebration of books, reading, and our imaginations, I Love a Book opens with a list of types of books and where to find them. The simple, lyrical prose then becomes more frantic as a young reader encounters pirates sailing the sea, a classroom of monsters “learning math with their paws,” and even an animal doctor making house calls in a helicopter.
With lavish illustrations nearly spilling off the page, the young reader finally reaches the end of an exhausting day, ready for bed … and more books. This book is for anyone who loves books and wants to instill this passion in the next generation.
