|When Blue Met Egg by Lindsay Ward|
I'm trying to go back over 2012 and make sure I didn't miss any good picture books. This is one that I missed and I'm glad I caught up with this title.
I really like the playful and friendly illustrations on different papers. There are several different kinds of old papers and she uses pencil for drawing and cut paper. There is lots of detail in the pictures and the story of the friendship between Blue and the Egg is so charming.
Lindsay has a decent website too. There's not a lot to do yet, but she keeps it updated and you can click on where Blue is now and see where Blue is visiting, and cut out paper dolls for Blue and Egg.
I'm sure we'll be seeing much more from Lindsay Ward.
