The Savannah Children's Book Festival was great fun for us on Saturday. The weather was PERFECT!!
We completely sold out of one of Daniel's book, but have a few left over of the others and I thought I'd show them to you. If you'd like to buy an autographed or dedicated copy, e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can work out the details.
Jiro's Pearl has always been my very favorite of Daniel's books. This story and the book all evolved from a dream Daniel had one night that left him with the image of a little Japanese boy walking through a forest. The story is wonderful and the images are exquisite, even if I say so myself! To find out more, visit Daniel's website here.
Take the Lead, George Washington is a beautiful and fairly long chapter/picture book for either advanced younger readers or reluctant older readers. It's about George Washington's childhood until he becomes a surveyor at the age of 15. The writing by Judith St. George is riveting and Daniel's illustrations are fantastic!! For more info and images from the book, click here!Henrietta is a fun, silly book that really popular with younger kids as the text is in rhymed verse. It's a story about Henrietta, and ostrich mama who likes to bury her head in the sand when things get dicey (can't we all relate?!?). For more on this book, click here!
From the Land of the White Birch is my other favorite book of Daniel's, but this one we sold out of last Saturday - completely. It is out of print, all hardbound and paperback copies of the book have been sold, and all the art from the book is either in private or museum collections. Daniel drew the black and white illustrations in charcoal on coquille board - they were stunningly exquisite! You can click here to see more images from the book!
So, if you would like to purchase an autographed or dedicated copy of one of the first three books, e-mail me (email@example.com) and we'll go from there.
I've been super busy running errands all day! Tomorrow, I'll show you some of the prints we sold at the festival - so beautiful!! Then, I have knitting to show, more artwork, recipes to share and nature photos to post - I need more hours in the day!!
I hope your Monday is a great one!!
