This morning over at Kirkus, I’ve got a round-up of new picture books. That is here, and next week I’ll have some art from each book.

Last week, I wrote here about Lena and Olof Landström’s Where Is Pim? (Gecko Press, April 2015), originally released overseas a couple years ago, as well as Dominique Roques’ Anna Banana and the Chocolate Explosion!, illustrated by Alexis Dormal and coming to shelves in June from First Second.

I’ve got a bit of art from each book today. Enjoy.

  1. Jules from Mrs. ATK a retired school librarian. This book review and illustrations of ANNA BANANA AND THE CHOCOLATE EXPLOSION book written by Alexis Dormal and Dominique Roques was delightful and good for escaping a dull Sunday in a small rural town.
    What was entertaining about the book was the wild crazy food mess which reminded me of my classrooms. The characters mixing up a mess of a recipe and pure enjoyment of the yummy chocolate-I use to make popcorn. The kindergarten kids got excited with the smell of fresh popcorn that often the popcorn flew all over the floor. Or when the children frosted home made cupcakes: the cupcakes had very little icing but their faces and aprons… Cleaning up the mess after school and facing the custodian’s unhappy face… Too many years ago but this book review brought back to an old lady joy.
