Stunning Picture Books for Kids

Boo! by Ben NewmanBoo! by Ben Newman

Scared you! This little mouse thinks he’s the bravest animal around, but it seems that he’s not the only one. . .
All the animals are keen to show off their bravery—from the crocodile with his mighty jaws, to the tiger with her scary claws! But who will be the bravest of them all?

Ben Newman is an award-winning illustrator who spends the majority of his time collaborating on the Professor Astro Cat children’s books with his longtime friend and scientist, Dr. Dominic Walliman, which are published by Flying Eye Books and have been translated into eighteen languages.

You know a book’s a hit when librarians steal it off of your desk (pre-pub, no less) to use in storytime . . . and you never see it again. This is one of my favorite readaloud picture books of the year. Can you see how the images just pop off a page so that even children in the back of the room are able to make out what’s going on?
