I love this next fun book that features prediction, play, and the pleasures of language with rhyming text by Carol Diggory Shields and gorgeous watercolor illustrations by Sophie Blackall. Sit back, relax, and enjoy learning a little about some Australian animals and how wonderful it is to read well-crafted words.

I am a big fan of Blackall's too. Thanks for sharing this one; I've just placed it on hold.

How nice to know you visit. Thank you. Sophie has an etsy shop with some really cool prints. Here's the shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/SophieBlackall?ref=ss_profile and here's the print that I'm planning on purchasing as soon as I manage to manifest some wall space (one of the problems of being an artist, being married to an artist, and having lots of awesome artist friends : ) I'm sure you understand completely. http://www.etsy.com/listing/62609967/face-painter That Sophie is sublime!
