Weekly Theme: "Heroes"

My illustration heroes, in no particular order:

Holly Hobbie, Garth Williams, Anita Jeram, Lisbeth Zwerger, Ana Juan, Mary Grandpre, Giovanni Manna, Mary Blair, Maurice Sendak, Leonard Weisgard, Helen Oxenbury, Janet and Allan Ahlberg, Harry Horse, Virginia Lee Burton, Beatrix Potter, Dick Bruna, Lucy Cousins, LeUyen Pham, Jeanette Winter, Jessie W. Smith, Delana Betolli, Laurence & Catherine Anholt, Melissa Sweet, Richard Scarry, Edward Gorey, Rosemary Wells, Rie Munoz, Oliver Jeffers, and Chris Raschka.

Is that too many? :) I'm sure I've forgotten someone. I LOVE these artists, and their work makes me so happy.

Below are the first books I remember being enamored with as a young child. The wonderful thing is, 30 + years later, they are also two of my son's favorites. They are timeless.
