Picture Books We Love

Picture Book Puzzler: Elephants

In honor of our new sculpture by Mo Willems, The Red Elephant, that was installed at The Carle this past weekend, today's Picture Book Puzzler is dedicated to elephants of picture books. Can you name the book each of these pachyderms come from? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back on Friday with the answers! READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Banned Book Week

It's Banned Books Week, a week observed at the end of every September since 1982 to celebrate free access to information, while drawing attention to the harms of censorship. All across the country libraries and bookstores have scheduled events to highlight banned and challenged books and to celebrate our democratic right and freedom to read. READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Pirates!

Ahoy, mateys! It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day (really, I didn't make it up...) and there certainly is no lack of picture books about pirates! I've put together a few favorites for you today. So put your guesses in the comments below...or walk the plank. I've made it multiple choice this week to make it a wee bit easier. Arrr! READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Roald Dahl

Tomorrow, September 13th is Roald Dahl's birthday and to celebrate, today's puzzler is quotes from his books. Can you name the book based on the quote? Put your guesses in the comments and I'll be back on Friday with the answers. 1. Panic and pandemonium broke out immediately on top of the peach. 2. It was at times like these that Mr. Hoppy wishes more than ever  that he could change places with Alfie and become a tortoise. READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Wonderland

This week's puzzler is about one of my very favorite classics: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Many (and I mean MANY) illustrators, both of children's and of adult literature, have paid homage to this adventure story with their own interpretations. We have a fairly extensive collection of different versions of both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking-Glass in our store and I've noticed that my own personal collection is getting larger as well. Below I've included just a few favorite versions. READ MORE
