The Lion and the Bird is the kind of book that will endure time and bring hours of thought and conversation about friendship, diversity and seasons. It is simply a beautiful creation—and my pick for this year’s Caldecott.
OCEANO POP-UP BOOK | by Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud; London: Tate Publishing, 2013 | Under the Ocean follows the voyage of Oceano, a red sailing boat, from port to a tropical lagoon, through temperate seas, the great white Arctic and an oceanic storm. Each pop-up page plays on the idea of the sea surface as a border to be crossed, showing the two worlds ‘above’ and ‘below’ the water.
