Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The illustrated picture book is one of the most important genres of childrens literature. Great artists have devoted some or all of their working lives to creating art that accompanies a text written for children. While book illustration has been practiced for thousands of years, picture book illustration is a relatively new phenomena.

IBBY (the International Board on Books for Children), at the heart of whose mandate lies the promotion of books of the highest quality, has been honoring illustrators through the Hans Christian Andersen Awards for nearly forty years. IBBY has also been helping to support the spread of book illustration for children to countries and cultures where such artistic activity is relatively new. In honor of IBBYs work and to support its future work, many of the worlds greatest illustrators for children have donated art based on a text of their choice drawn from their childhood and culture. The result is a book that celebrates art created for children from around the world. The texts in the book are in both the original language and in English. Noted author and editor Stan Dragland has translated the texts.Groundwood Books will pay a royalty of 15% of all sales to IBBY.

Review:

"In a brief, thoughtful foreword, Katherine Paterson pays tribute to the late Jella Lepman, founder of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), devoted to bringing books to children all over the world. Aldana's introduction explains that an international group of 33 well- and lesser-known children's book illustrators, donated their work to this project, illustrating poems or passages they have either selected or written themselves (the texts appear in both their original language and in English). Verbally and visually, the entries vary from simple to cryptic, playful to haunting. Mitsumasa Anno contributes an original poem equally as affecting as his full-spread picture celebrating children everywhere; Vera B. Williams offers a cheerful visual variation on the song that begins, 'There were five in a bed...'; South African artist Piet Grobler contributes a painting of humans and creatures with voices raised in song, inspired by a Philip de Vos poem ('... Don't be silent/ nor afraid,/ you must sing/ as you've been made'). Both Indian artist Pulak Biswas and Peter Ss (who claims both the Czech Republic and the U.S. as home) use traditional texts as a jumping off point for two very different renderings of a rhinoceros. Short biographical sketches of each contributor appear at the end of this handsomely designed compendium, a vibrant testament to the range and resonance of contemporary children's book illustration all around the globe. Ages 4-up. FYI: A portion of the book's proceeds will be donated to IBBY." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
