Enter for a chance to win one of 3 signed, first-edition copies of MINE! by Susie Lee Jin (40 page picture book for ages 4-8).
 

From the Simon & Schuster website:

Several competitive bunnies compete in an epic battle to claim a single carrot in this hilarious and sweet debut picture book about sharing.

Mine! No, Mine! No, Mine! Yours? Wait...ours?

Told with only four words and filled with energetic illustrations, Susie Lee Jin puts an inventive twist on the concept of sharing with this laugh-inducing tale.


PRAISE...


"This nondidactic story is a natural for collections about sharing, effectively softening the natural tendency toward possessiveness of most living things through its sweet illustrations." – Kirkus Reviews, October 1, 2015

"Jin’s debut is a ridiculous romp and a positive lesson in sharing" – Booklist, December 15, 2015

"will appeal to both storytellers and listeners alike" – School Library Journal, January 1, 2016

Stephanie Ruble - Artist's Choice

The Illustration Friday prompt this week is nose, so of course I thought of the old Froot Loops commercials with Toucan Sam following his nose (because it always knows). Though even as a kid, I knew that Sam's nose was really his beak.

I was inspired to paint two characters from my current picture book project following two toucans while wearing toucan noses:


I also posted another nose painting (of Little Red Riding Hood) for Illustration Friday on my blog.  Click here to see it.

Please visit my website, sruble.com, to learn more about my art and projects, or my blog to see more recent art.

Laura Goetz- " I will arise and go now"

c 2016 Laura Goetz
My entry into the NJSCBWI Annual Conference, Juried Art Show.
The theme was to illustrate the words, "I will arise and go now," by William Butler Yeats.

Winter ~ Little Red Riding Hood - Ginger Nielson

This winter's red riding hood is a bit different from other paintings on the subject.  As little red had never seen a wolf before she had no idea how evil one could be.
