Shameless plug!

Check out my new favorite picture book:

It's AWESOME!
My brother-in-law did the fabulous artwork and my sister wrote the fun text. 
It's the second book they've done together. 
Here are a few of my favorite pictures:








Isn't it fun? Don't you want a copy all your own?  If you want to see more,

Their first picture book, If Picasso Painted a Snowman is also still available.
They'd make great gifts for the budding artists in your life. Or for the kid in you.


Happy Reading!

  1. I got If Picasso Painted a Snowman for my great-niece for Christmas last year after seeing it here! (Of course, I read through it first--a couple of times--because it was such fun.) Now, I know what I can get her for Christmas this year. Thanks, Lark!

    1. I read the snowman one to a bunch of 2nd graders the other day and they were enthralled. They loved the idea of being able to draw a snowman ANY way they wanted and have it be "right". :)

  5. Both books are a great way to introduce children to art and painting. Plus, just in time for people to put it on their Christmas lists if they have children (or kids at heart) to buy for! :D

  9. Agree, this is awesome and kids are fascinated with dinosaurs, who isn't and the talented artwork and text by your brother in law and sister a great way to get kids interested in DaVinci and Picasso.

  10. Hi Lark Lovely to see you over at Pen and Paper, you are most welcome to stop by anytime.

    What an amazing concept and great illustrations to boot. I have to share these books with my friend who teaches art and having triplets of their own is always on the lookout for books featuring the subject which they can share with them.

  11. Thanks for such a nice post! I appreciate the readers of your blog and all of their kind comments. This book needs all the positive word of mouth it can get, but I think it deserves it. (Of course, I am not biased at all!)
