TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great book blogs to follow, head on over and check it out!
The topic this week is: Online Resources for Book Lovers
But I don't really have any, so instead I'm going to follow a thought prompted by last week's TTT, and share some of my favorite illustrators. This means this will be another mostly nostalgic, definitely children's and MG book post. I'm listing the books these illustrators worked on that I have read myself, although of course many of them did many other projects as well. Some are author/illustrators and some strictly illustrate the words of others. As I worked on this list, I started thinking of modern illustrators I also really love, so I'll save those for a later post.
Garth Williams: The Rescuers, A Cricket in Times Square, several Little House books, Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, several Little Golden Books, etc.
Arthur Rackham: Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, A Midsummer Night's Dream, etc.
Ernest Shepherd: The Wind in the Willows, Winnie the Pooh
Tasha Tudor: The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, A Child's Garden of Verses
Robert McCloskey: Blueberries for Sal, Make Way for Ducklings, Homer Price
Maurice Sendak: Where the Wild Things Are, Higgledy Piggledy Pop!, In the Night Kitchen, Little Bear, What Do You Do, Dear?, Chicken Soup with Rice
Kate Seredy: The Good Master, The Singing Tree, The White Stag, Caddie Woodlawn
Mercer Mayer: A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog series, Beauty and the Beast The Great Brain series. (But not the Little Critter stuff.)
Kate Greenaway: Mother Goose, Under the Window
Clearly, I've always been a sucker for pretty dresses and for pen line drawings. Do you recognize any of these?
