A Celebration of Beatrix Potter: Art and letters by more than 30 of today's favorite children's book illustrators Reviews
A colleague had shared this collection of art and essays by other writers who loved Beatrix Potter and were influenced by her. It is a wonderful tribute to her work and effect on other creative minds. It is a delight! Many thanks! Sybil Blazej-Yee, a librarian, an artist and a children's book author
Was a little disappointed in this one. But it is fun and contemporary.
A present for a water-color artist who was delighted in the sketches and the text.
I love, love this book!
As a little girl I loved the Beatrix Potter books and as an elementary school teacher I always made sure my classroom contained her books. Then later as the school librarian I had a complete section of my library dedicated to her work. I found her tiny books enchanting and the creative ideas within whisked you away to a magical world that thrived behind hedges, under piles of mown grass and on the soggy brink of a pond sprinkled with lily pads.
