Kid Bits - Picture Books with a Point-of-View

Like to Figure things out? In journalism, "What's your angle?" In picture books, "What's your point of view?" David Weisner tells the story of Flotsam through pictures only. His illustrations are as dramatic and involving as ever. Neil Curtis presents the story of Cat and Fish Go To See in highly detailed black and white engraving-style illustrations, reminiscent of Escher prints. Walter Wick adds Can You See What I See? Once Upon A Time to his "picture puzzles to search and solve" series that kids love to study. Each is a great "looking" book.
