Pretty Little Things

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.

Sara, I love Little Hoot! I bought it for my little one, Ned, for Easter. Her illustrations are divine.
Also in regards to Henry books have you seen these picture books
Looking forward to Where You Came From.

Thanks, Lou. I'd forgotten that you'd posted about Little Hoot - it's adorable, isn't it?
My son was trying to posit another volume in the series - what sort of creature or thing could want to go to school when his parents want him to stay home?

I've been coveting this gem for a while now, and your post (thank-you!) reminded me that I must get myself a copy. Which is what I did yesterday. Oh joy!
