This week I'm starting a new feature I'm calling HEART ART. These posts will be about books, new and perhaps a little older, that are illustrated with such skill and magic, they capture the reader and won't let go. Sometimes I'll get interviews with the illustrators, sometimes not, but I won't let that stop me from sharing some exceptionally illustrated books with you! So be looking for my new logo on books I think are extra special and full of true HEART ART!
I'll begin my HEART ART feature with...
Just in time for Easter, although it a lovely story at any time of the year, a special anniversary gift edition of Guess How Much I Love You is now available with a gold cover and a unique note from the award-winning creators inside. Sometimes, when you love someone very, very much, you want to find a way of describing how much you treasure them. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not always an easy thing to measure! Now new and existing fans can relive this cherished classic with this lavish edition, celebrating two decades of delighting readers since its initial creation.

So what makes Guess How Much I Love You HEART ART? Look at the interactions between the characters, the sense of play, the wonderful gestures. Also notice the fine ink line and delicate watercolor. There's a reason this book has become a classic!
Love this new feature! I hope to see some of my favorite books in the future. You already know some of them.
I'm glad, Marilyn!! There are some books I just have to share! :) e
