Example text

Two of the best of the more comprehensive volumes still in print came out in the 1980s. With its quaint, innocent-looking figures and childlike drawing style, Tomie dePaola’s Mother Goose (with 204 rhymes) is immediately appealing. But there’s much more going on in dePaola’s art than the casual reader may notice at first. His figures — so decorative, so comfortably arrayed in their ample white space — are also subtly expressive; his sophisticated juxtapositions of light, bright colors are unexpectedly harmonious; his elegantly balanced compositions include just enough action and detail to inspire young imaginations to fill out the stories for themselves.

The worthy missionaries who stocked the libraries we frequented in our childhoods, who talked up new books into classics, these pioneers were not only keen on narrative and cunning on message. They were visually literate, too. Those Horn Book editors of the past would recognize that the book on the bedside table of Calvin’s parents might more likely be Charlotte’s Web or Monster or When You Reach Me than the latest bestseller on the New York Times adult list. That open book, caught in mid-story, might well be something that The Horn Book Magazine recommends with a starred review.

Olivier Dunrea, Gossie; Gossie & Gertie 32 pp. Dunrea’s captivating stories about two inquisitive goslings make perfect board books. Dunrea is precisely attuned to the toddler world: making friends, losing beloved objects, wanting someone else’s beloved objects. The goslings march across the clean white pages in their bright blue and red boots, having tiny adventures and learning about the world as they go. Mem Fox, illustrations by Judy Horacek, Where Is the Green Sheep? 32 pp. This charming tale, in which readers search for an elusive green sheep, works beautifully as a board book.
