New addition to my book collection #3

This weekend I also treated myself to a book which has been on my Amazon wish list since before it was published... 'Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf' written by Judy Sierra and illustrated by one of my absolute favourites, Jotto Seibold. Take a look at his website... much fun to be had!

It's a cute story, Big Bad Wolf has grown up and is no longer the mean young wolf he used to be.


I have to be honest, my attraction to this book is the illustrations. I adore Seibold's take on the world... and can't deny that my favourite books are the ones he has collaborated on with his wife, Vivian Walsh.

This is the Seibold chunk of my children's book collection... my new addition prompted me to dig them out and have an enjoyable flick through them all today.


Seibold's pop-up 'Alice in Wonderland'...


and the wonderful pop-up grand finale from the 10th anniversary deluxe edition of 'Olive, The Other Reindeer'...

i LOVE the Alice in Wonderland pop-up book. Of course, my kids loved it to death :-(
The best part was the disappearing cheshire cat.
