One of the most magical feats a picture book can do is create a harmony between beautiful words and images. A harmony that doesn’t merely describe the other, but enhances, complements, and deepens the story.
These are all books by fellow author/illustrators. Whether the text is sparse and poetic (The Big Umbrella, The Book of Mistakes) or rich in dialogue and action (Linus, Bear Scare) or even absurd but informational and inspiring (Crab Cake) - all are exceptional.
