Today at Kirkus, I look at some reissues that make me happy. That link is here.

Last week, I wrote here about, in part, Deborah Hopkinson’s newest picture book, Beatrix Potter & the Unfortunate Tale of a Borrowed Guinea Pig (Schwartz & Wade, February 2016), illustrated by Charlotte Voake. I’ve got art from that today.

And, because I love Voake’s illustrations so much, I’ve also got art here today from Say It!, which was reissued last September (Candlewick) with illustrations from Voake. The book was originally published in 1980 and was illustrated by James Stevenson. This reissue is oh-so beautiful.

AND … one more! Since we’re on the topic of Beatrix Potter, I’ve got a spread below from David McPhail’s Beatrix Potter and Her Paint Box, which was released last October (Henry Holt).

Enjoy!



 

From Deborah Hopkinson’s Beatrix Potter &
the Unfortunate Tale of a Borrowed Guinea Pig
,
illustrated by Charlotte Voake:


 


“Miss Beatrix Potter lived with her parents and her little brother,
Bertram, at 2 Bolton Gardens in London. …”

quite happy to stroll along the streets of London on a leash.”

“… When at last Beatrix bounded into her art studio, ready to take up her brush again, a horrible sight met her eyes. ‘Your Majesty, what have you done?’ …”

  1. I find it amusing that I like books ABOUT B. Potter much more than I ever liked B. Potter books. This one looks like it’s a hoot!
