I had a nice browse through the bookstore this weekend, and found this absolutely charming book. I like "quiet" things anyway, and the art on the cover was irresistible so I had to pick it up. The art throughout the book is witty and wonderfully executed. I love Miss Liwska's style - drawings, which are colored digitally. You can see more of her work on her website.

We had a yucky storm this weekend. I saw my neighbor's kids out trying to have an Easter egg hunt in the rain. When I was a kid it rained one Easter and the folks just hid them in the house. They always claimed there was one egg that was never found, but I think that's a bit of lore, because it would have smelled up the place pretty good at some point, don't you think?

Anyway. Its Monday, and back to work for me. See ya!

Thanks for sharing. I like quiet books too. Sadly so few publishers are interested in "quiet" these days. I love how she has posted sketches of the book on the Amazon page.

When you mentioned the "unfound egg", it put me in mind of Templeton the Rat in Charlotte's Web, hoarding the goose egg and having it explode in all its stinky goodness.
