I discovered this little book with a record in the middle at a Breathe Owl Breathe show in Grand Rapids this past year and it has haunted me every since. I just ordered my own copy this morning, taking the plunge and spilling $33 out of my pay pal account. If I want to be supported as an artist it follows that I need to support other artists as well.
I love this book for the way it marries visual art with music in the context of children's literature. As a parent who is still reading to his children every night, it is very important to find books that I can love as much as the children. Last night we were in the magical world of the brothers Grimm Fairy tales. I look forward to the arrival of The Listeners and the adventure that awaits us there.
