A couple of weeks ago, I chatted with British picture book author and zoologist Nicola Davies about her newest picture book, The Promise (Candlewick, March 2014), illustrated by Laura Carlin. I already linked to that here at 7-Imp, yet I completely forgot to share the spread from the book that I have on hand.

So, here it is today, a Laura Carlin-moment. (And, in case you missed it, here’s the Q&A with Nicola.)

Also, here’s a video I found online of Carlin discussing the book:
