This morning over at Kirkus, I write about Jean E. Pendziwol’s beautiful new picture book, Once Upon a Northern Night, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault. That link is here.

Last week, I wrote here about Angela Dominguez’s Maria Had a Little Llama/María Tenía Una Llamita, to be released next month by Henry Holt.

Here are a couple of sketches and spreads from Dominguez. Enjoy.

Note: These spreads are without the text, and I’m not going to include the text in captions underneath the images, since I have an F&G of the book; I’m afraid there may have been changes to the book from F&G to publication stage, and I don’t want to type the incorrect text!
