“So Chicken Little and Henny Penny and Ducky Lucky and Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurkey hurried off down the road to tell the king the sky was falling.
And on the way they met Foxy Loxy.”

Today over at Kirkus, I take a look at Liniers’ new picture book What There Is Before There Is Anything There, to be released by Groundwood Books next month.

That link is here.

Last week, I wrote here about a small handful of new picture books. Since you know I always like to follow up with art, today I have art from each book. It’s all below. (Please note: The colors in the spreads from Richard Scarry are a bit off; the colors are a bit brighter than they appear in the book.)

Enjoy.

A delivery motorcycle hurries by.”

“The little mouse ran through the city. She ran and ran and ran. And she did not stop until she was safe in the quiet green country.”

“And on he ran, with the little old woman, the little old man, the gentle brown cow,
and the big brown bear all running after him.”
