While browsing around on Tiny Showcase I came across some beautiful images by Jen Corace ... and she is illustrating children's books. In fact her latest collaboration is just out. It's called Little Hoot and here's a pic I snagged from Jen's blog:
Jen Corace also illustrated Amy Krouse Rosenthal's Little Pea which was an absolutely adorable story of a wee fellow who didn't want to eat his candy. The new book riffs off the same concept by giving us the story of a little owl who doesn't want to stay up late.
I also found some lovely limited edition prints by Corace over at the fabulosa Mahar Dygoods site:
Watch for a review of Little Hoot here when I get my picture book round-up rounded up.
