love books

two lovely children’s books i came across at love books last sunday.

a ‘long piece of string’ is the best alphabet book for kids i’ve ever seen. a piece of string wraps itself around different objects, h for house, i for ice cream and so on. illustrated by william wondriska.

and ‘shadow’ by suzy lee. all about a little girl’s imagination and a world she finds in the shadows. beautiful.

now grow up frankie so i can buy these for you.

ježeva kućica

ježeva kućica or the hedgehog’s house was my favourite book when i was growing up. unfortunately i couldn’t find more images, this is just the cover. written by branko ćopić, illustrated by vilko gliha-selan. here is a video of the whole story if you would like to see it.

i would LOVE to have a copy of this.
