Personal Favourites

I own a lot of picture books. Books with great stories, books with great illustrations, books with gatefolds, pop ups, lift the flaps, long ones, short ones, tall ones, wide ones, so many that I have started making new shelves on my book case by stacking books horizontally on top of the vertical ones. I never grew out of them and I know I never will. It would be impossible to make a Top Ten list.. but here are a few favourites:

 Rhinos don't eat pancakes by Anna Kemp, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie

 Mr. Peek and the misunderstanding at the zoo by Kevin Waldron

 Duck, Death and the Tulip by Wolf Erlbruch

 I am an Artist by Marta Altes

 The General by Michael Foreman, text by Janet Charters

 Augustus And His Smile by Catherine Rayner

 The Arrival by Shaun Tan

 Big Rabbit's Bad Mood by Ramona Badescu, illustrated by Delphine Durand

 The Cockerel and the Fox by Helen Ward

Wave by Suzy Lee
