The Best Book Ever [this week] - March 1, 2015 | Let's Get Busy podcast

8 hours ago

Over on the Busy Librarian blog they are LOVING Beautiful Birds written and illustrated by J. [Jean] Roussen and E. [Emmanuelle] Walker. "This, as well, has some of the most beautiful design I've seen in a picture book. This goes alphabetically through a number of different bird species, and just every single page looks like it could be ripped out and framed. I love the dimensions; It's a very tall book and it covers a great number of birds that I hadn't heard of before and I think will be new to readers. The text rhymes, but really the star of the book here is is the art and how beautifully portrayed these different birds are. to check it out. So check it out. That's Beautiful Birds published from Flying Eye Books." http://lgbpodcast.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/the-best-book-ever-this-week-march-1.html?m=1

The element of surprise is powerful indeed. Often when a reader opens a book, they have a general sense of what to expect. But once in a while, a book comes along that surprises. Wild About Shapes is that kind of book. Visually inventive, this is a book that will delight anyone who opens it up. http://100scopenotes.com/2015/01/19/review-wild-about-shapes-by-jeremie-fischer/

The Illustrated Forest review 'Beautiful Birds': If you have seen the cover of this book then you are sure to be drawn in for it is truly magnetic. The text and spine are of a fluorescent orange (more coral than satsuma) and this boisterous colour is omnipresent throughout the book. The book is so varied in colour that this shade is used to tie the illustrations together, and used with great imagination. Sometimes it is only a hint, a duck’s foot or beak, but at times it is a flash of brilliance, a well placed berry to draw the eye, an owl’s eye piercing the night or to decorate the peacock’s plumes until he feels truly opulent. It’s a wonderful visual through-line, and we sought it out on every page as we would a character. http://www.theillustratedforest.com/#!beautiful-birds/ckxn
