Have any of you seen Kazuno Kohara’s newest picture book, The Midnight Library (Roaring Brook, June 2014)?
I’m taken with it, and I love to see her linocut illustrations.
I reviewed The Midnight Library here for BookPage. So, if you’d like to read more about the book, you can head over there.
Today I’m following up with some illustrations from the book. The one pictured here to the left is toward the end of the book when the little librarian and her owls head upstairs to read one last book before bedtime.
And below is a bit more art.
A little librarian worked there with her three assistant owls.”

Note for any new readers: 7-Imp’s 7 Kicks is a weekly meeting ground for taking some time to reflect on Seven(ish) Exceptionally Fabulous, Beautiful, Interesting, Hilarious, or Otherwise Positive Noteworthy Things from the past week, whether book-related or not, that happened to you. New kickers are always welcome.
You’ll have to forgive me for not listing seven, separate kicks here, but I’ve got a stack of great books I’m reading (and I’m eager to start this new one from Gregory Maguire), so my one big kick is: Good books. And that, just like the little librarian, I’m going to go get comfy and read.
But do tell me: What are YOUR kicks this week?
