I was at my local library a few weeks ago, and I discovered Marthe Jocelyn’s books. She just recently published a new book called A Big Dose of Lucky. I will be reviewing it later on this blog. But for now, I will review a few of her wonderful picture books.
Here books are illustrated beautifully, and the illustrations bring the story home for the reader. There is a uniqueness and a freshness to her illustrations. I never saw such unique illustrations in a picture book author before. What a treat!
In this exploration of homonyms, readers will discover the fun they can have with language. Is a wave at a beach? Or at a train station? Is a trunk in a garden? Or on an elephant? Kids will love seeing words with their many meanings, and the detailed illustrations will have young readers coming back again and again to read and re-read this wonderful book.
Thank you Marthe and Nell Jocelyn for another wonderful story. This mother and daughter team is wonderful and memorable!
