From Emma Chichester Clark’s Bears Don’t Read!


 

That’s a very long post title, but I have a lot of art today.

Last week, I wrote here at Kirkus about some new picture book imports, so I’m following up today here at 7-Imp with some art from each book (some art above and some more below).

Today over at Kirkus, I have three new picture books that are oh-so lovely, and that link is here.

Enjoy the rest of the art below.
