I must recommend a new picture book that is so stunning and unique.
In “The Story of the Snowflake and Inkdrop” (Enchanted Lion, Nov. 2015) we see a single snowflake drifting into a town imagining where it might fall. Turn the book over and begin to read “The Story of Inkdrop and Snowflake” and find yourself in an artist’s studio. Here an ink drop dreams of landing in one of the exquisite drawings around her. An unexpected wind forges a meeting of snowflake and ink drop.
We view the glorious illustrations through intricate laser cuts. A surprise center-fold unites both stories into one, with an entrancing blend of black and white.
This is a gorgeous gift book and a lovely story for all ages.
