Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes

Salley Mavor

This hand-picked collection of classic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is reknown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes. It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

Book:Bunny Days

Bunny Days

Tao Nyeu

Six frolicking bunnies, two busy goats, and a very handy bear live harmoniously——though not without mishap——in this picture book charmer. What do the bunnies do when Mr. Goat drives by on his tractor and accidentally splashes them all over with mud? They hop over to Bear, who always knows just how to help——in this case, with the delicate cycle and a refreshing line dry! Two additional stories are even more surprising and giggle-worthy.

All’’s well that ends well in this eye-catching, endearing treat of a book, full of funny details and exhilarating artistry.
