Hello Friends, it's been a while! I have been slacking lately, summer is flying by and I have been trying to make the most of it. I have been squeezing in lots of beach time with friends, lawn games and lounging in the garden with good books. And speaking of books, I have found some little gems lately!
I share with you The Bottom Of The Sea, written by Augusta Goldin and illustrated by Ed Emberley, Copyright 1966.
I like this book for many reasons, the minimal color scheme, the illustrations, and the instructive format (I swoon over graphs and charts-nerd alert, I know!). However, this book is grand because it reminds me so much of The Life Aquatic, by my most favorite director, Wes Anderson. While I don't think that movie was his best storyline, the visuals and the acting of Bill Murray are superb.
This quirky little book was a lucky find at my lovely local library, enjoy!
