Mark Pett, that is.
I like saying “Pett.” I like to imagine that when Mark Pett walks into a bar, his friends yell, “PETT”, à la Norm Peterson.
Anyway. Last week at Kirkus, I wrote about Mark’s newest picture book, The Girl and the Bicycle (Simon & Schuster, April 2014). That is here.
I like to read reviews. I read one reviewer refer to the “Capra-esque” worlds of Pett’s books. I like that. Capra-esque could be entirely too much, depending on the illustrator, but Mark Pett does it just right.
Here are some more spreads from the book.
