Reviews

Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favorite contemporary illustrator. Pure magic. -- Christian Robinson, Caledecott Honor Winner of Last Stop on Market Street Naive and childlike yet so very sophisticated. Lovely. -- Lane Smith, Best-selling illustrator of The Stinky Cheese Man Heartbreakingly beautiful. You get the sense that she becomes totally lost in it while drawing and as a viewer you want to do the same. I think this might be Beatrice's most breathtaking work yet. -- Julie Morstad, award-winning illustrator of Julia, Child and Swan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova The name Beatrice means 'she who brings happiness.' Her work is not necessarily happy all the time-and I am grateful for that-but it is always is strong and delicate, lyrical and honest, all at the same time. -- Sergio Ruzzier, award-winning illustrator of This is Not a Picture Book Seeing A Lion in Paris made me realize how beautiful picture books can be. -- Chris Haughton, award-winning illustrator of Shh! We Have a Plan
