Picture Books We Love

Bob Staake

Red Lemon_blogDonut Chef_blog Last Saturday we were lucky enough to have Bob Staake, author and illustrator of picture books such as The Red Lemon and The Donut Chef, visit us here at The Carle.  Bob's one of the talented artists featured in the Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Books exhibition right now in our East Gallery.  He and Dan Yaccarino represent the new, modern illustration of our beloved Golden Books.  (And Dan will be here February 20th - don't miss it!) Bob gave a wonderful presentation in our auditorium about how he digitally makes his art and walked us through the process of creating many of his books.  We even got a peek at his funny book ideas for "Golden-Books-That-Will-Never-Be": Siamese-Unicorn_blogyeti_blog And a special Golden Books guest joined us in the audience - The Poky Little Puppy, himself! PLP After Bob's presentation, he did a booksigning outside our Shop with Golden Book editor and author, Diane Muldrow.  Their latest book together, We Planted a Tree, will be released March 9th, but we got early copies just for this event. Bob Staake booksigning_blogwe planted a tree Thank you to Bob and Diane for a wonderful, memorable event. Come back and visit us soon! Bob Staake Diane Muldrow Do you have a favorite Bob Staake book?
