AUGUST 2018 FAMILY BOOK BOX

  • Thumpy Feet by Betsy Lewin. An adorable book about a happy cat with thumpy feet enjoying his day.  Betsy received a Caldecott honor for her bestselling book, Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type. She is married to Ted Lewin, who is also an author/illustrator. They live in a brownstone in Brooklyn, New York.
  • Red Sky at Night by Elly MacKay from Owen Sound, Ontario. Weather sayings and Elly’s enchanting images are a perfect match. The sayings weave into a story of a grandfather and his grandchildren as they head out on a fishing and camping trip. But red sky in the morning, sailors take warning! Elly studied print making and illustration at art school and has become an acclaimed paper artist and children’s author and illustrator. Her technique for creating her illustrations is quite detailed. First she inks her characters and the backgrounds on Yupo paper. Then cuts out the layers and sets them up in her miniature theatre. She lights the scenes and takes multiple photographs, altering the lenses, light and filters to create atmosphere. Elly takes her inspiration from Victoria Paper Theatre and Tunnel Books. Don’t miss my interview with Elly on our website blog.
  • An exclusive letter from Elly MacKay
  • A poster from Red Sky at Night
