Oh, hai! I read books, then I write down what I think of them.
This is a real toughie because there is a real dearth of picture books in my life. It's not really fair to chose one I haven't read, so Hyperbole and A Half is out (although it fits the brief perfectly - the blogs are NOTHING without the illustrations), and I don't really want to chose any of my childhood classics like Winnie The Pooh.
My pick is Kit Williams' Masquerade. It's the story of lost trinket in more ways than one - the trinket of the story was hidden by Williams and the book's illustrations gave clues as to its location sparking a UK wide treasure hunt. In the end, the jewel was found thanks to some insider knowledge, but it's a fascinating puzzle with some gorgeous paintings, plus I really love hares.
