The Woollyhoodwinks: vs. The Dark Patch: Phil Dumesnil, Asa Sanchez, Jeff Root, Scott Runcorn: Books
Just in time for fall, comes a bunch of critters who look all warm in their wool coats. I suppose it was just a matter of time before someone recognized that the Woollyhoodwinks were just too cuddly, cozy, and cute and had to star in their own children's book. But here they are staring into the "patch" that has fallen from the sky. Soon this "dark patch" will do a "blob" turn and start spreading across the verdant Black North Forest. Luckily these five plush dolls are more ingenious and funny than Steve McQueen. Plus their adventures are told in a narrative style so offbeat and unique (somewhere between poetry and prose), that I'm sure the more I re-read it, the more I'll understand how I'm a 'Wink and everybody is a 'Wink too in their own special way. ;)
Funny! So, even if you can't attend, you can stage your own little royal wedding. Of course, first you have to knit them & since I can't knit, I guess I'll just have to enjoy pictures of both the real & re-enactment weddings...
Much to my visual pleasure, the Aussie artist SKAFFS has illustrated his first tale for kids at heart. No wonder it blooms with retina-popping delight and serves up cute critters of the land down under. Here innocence is no reason... Much to my visual pleasure, the Aussie artist SKAFFS has illustrated his first tale for kids at heart. No wonder it blooms with retina-popping delight and serves up cute critters of the land down under. Here innocence is no reason not to explore the unknown, not an excuse to fear it - those were the days! Plus it has an childlike buoyancy which allows anything to happen under the sun. In an age of troubles, SKAFFS art washes over my eyeballs like a cool breeze and makes bedtimes go down silky smooth.
