Tomie dePaola has been one of our favorite children's book authors/illustrators since the girls were very young. (Little did I know when I wrote about him here, that in a few short months we would have the opportunity to listen to him speak and meet him at a signing!!) His books have provided countless hours of entertainment for our family throughout the years.. And now he has a brand new book out, with a shiny pink cover!!!
Brava Strega Nona!, a pop-up book! (Strega Nona is one of his most beloved book characters!)
One of my girls and I went to the bookstore where he was doing a signing today and I was able to get a picture of her with Tomie right before he signed our book!
This book has the most intricate pop-ups... it's just unbelievable the talent that goes into designing them...
The colors are bright and beautiful - and there are LOTS of pinks!!!
(How cute!! A little pop-up book within a big pop-up book!)
