Last week my blog was a stop on the Dragon and Dangerous Princess blog tour, in which Jim Averbeck, writer and illustrator of Oh No, Little Dragon! (Atheneum Books, 2012) and Dangerously Ever After, by Dashka Slater (my review). At that time I hadn't actually had the pleasure of reading Jim's new book, but that has now been remedied!
Totally charming. The pictures are simple, and so is the story, but in a most excellent way.
Except If (Atheneum, 2011). This one's more sophisticated--in a series of possibilities, the reader/viewer is taken from an egg to a snake to a lizard to a fossilized dinosaur (!), and back again to an egg. Mind expanding for the young, and one a grown-up can enjoy reading too.
If you didn't get a chance to read Jim Averbeck and Dashka Slater's chat about fantasy books here at my blog tour stop, here's the link again.
