Curious George. ("YES!" I thought! I had successfully resisted making a purchase!) ...Until, just as I was heading out the door, I looked down, and lo and behold, I saw my old Dr. Katz friend Annette's new first children's book "The Magic Rabbit" peering up at me from the bottom of the first standing book rack, facing the entrance of the store!!! Oh my gosh, I was SO thrilled to see this. I, of course, did the stop - stare - grab - look, but quickly preempted the look-through and instead swiftly brought it to the register! I KNEW it would be something special!! I am so thrilled for Annette's wonderful success and I look forward to reading her new book!! (I even got a signed copy - how fun!)
I have not read it yet because I really need to carve out a time to absorb it without distractions. But I have flipped through it, and the art is nothing short of spectacular. Of course I'd expect nothing less!! When I asked, I was so surprised to hear that the book came out several months ago. Don't know how I missed it for so long!! :) Annette wrote AND illustrated this book, and it is her first. Published by Candlewick Press. Big congratulations to Annette!
