What I enjoy the most about this version of the story of Seabiscuit are the almost childlike illustrations. I do think that this wil attract younger readers to the book and to the story of this mighty horse.
David Small will be one of the speakers at our annual conference in just a few weeks, so it was lovely to see his latest in terms of illustration in THAT BOOK WOMAN, written by Heather Henson. A pack librarian brings books to a family who live far away from the city and far away from anything and anyone. The young boy, at first puzzled why his sister would elect to sit and bury herself in a book, reluctantly comes to admire the spirit of the pack horse librarian who, ultimately, brings him to a love of books and reading.
