Blogging for a Cure, Day Before Last

h1 November 17th, 2007 by jules

Below is today’s Robert’s Snow schedule.

Pictured here is an ’07 snowflake, entitled “Wishing,” which was not on the initial list and so not covered by a blogger in the Blogging for a Cure effort. I’m happy to be able to feature it. It was created by Jui Ishida and will be sold in Auction 3. Jui illustrated Janet Buell’s wonderful Sail Away, Little Boat (Carolrhoda Books, 2006). A web search reveals that Ishida will be illustrating Good Night, Little One: Bedtime Around the World by Chris Matsuda next year (Rising Moon) as well.

If you missed them, you can read yesterday’s features here. If you collect dolls or know someone who does, here’s a snowflake for you.

Don’t forget this page where all the features are being compiled in one spot.

Here is today’s schedule:

  1. Jules and Eisha, Thanks for all of the hard work you’ve put into Blogging for a Cure.

  2. It always helps when you put the picture of the book they have out — then I can see the similarities and differences in their snowflake. This little guy is a cutie.

  3. Good to hear that, TadMack. I’m not always familiar with them (I’m learning about new illustrators through Blogging for a Cure, like a lot of others are), but I do know and love Sail Away, Little Boat, and I wanna get more of Ishida’s books.

    You know, when this whole effort is over, I’m going to make a list of picture books I want to get from the library that are by the featured illustrators, ’cause so many good-lookin’ ones have been revealed to us. And you? LOOK AT YOU, TadMack, you new picture book addict, you! I hope I can take some credit!

  4. Oh and thanks, Alkelda!

  5. By the way, I kinda wish I knew the back-story on this snowflake. It’s slowly becoming one of my favorites. I wonder what they’re “wishing” for.
