Maria Popova (Brain Pickings) reviews Children's Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling by  Martin Salisbury and Morag Styles in The Atlantic:
... the book's most fascinating feat is its discussion of the socially constructed and increasingly fluid criteria for what is suitable for children, with complex themes like violence, sex, death and grief, and human rights violations turning picturebooks into a powerful crossover storytelling medium for all ages. 

Wolf Erlbruch's Duck, Death and the Tulip

Will be looking for this one.  Also Duck, Death and the Tulip!
