Tomorrow morning at Kirkus, I take a look at illustrator and designer Chris Haughton’s newest picture book, Oh No, George! The link will be here.

Last week, I weighed in on Shana Corey’s picture book biography, Here Come the Girl Scouts!, illustrated by debut artist Hadley Hooper. That link is here, if you missed it.

Today, I feature some spreads from the book (a spread above, which I loveloveLOVE, and a couple more below). Enjoy.

(Also, I highly recommend taking some time today to explore the art featured at Hadley’s site. Such good stuff there. I hope she illustrates more picture books in this world.)

  1. Thanks for sharing these. All I had seen was the cover art and now, after looking at these spreads, I can’t wait to get my hands on the whole thing!


  2. Thanks for introducing this book! It’s definitely one that many little girl scouts would be able to relate to. Love non-fiction books that pretend to be just yummy fiction stories!


  3. Don’t you just love the description of Daisy on the first spread- “A lgirl with gumption.” I hope I remember to use that phrase when describing my girls the next time something less savory comes to my mind first!
