The Perfect Thanksgiving

As we all sit down today to some type of Thanksgiving meal, I thought I'd share a picture book we can probably all relate to: The Perfect Thanksgiving!
With a fabulous text by Eileen Spinelli and such lively and funny illustrations by Joann Adinolfi, this is a great seasonal read.

This was my favorite spread. I've really been drawn to illustrations with loose, disproportionate and abstract spaces. Not spots, per se, but those imagined spaces where everything works, when logic tells you it shouldn't. Kudos to you Joann Adinolfi! - Be sure to visit her website. I just adore her illustrated 'About' page.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'd like to take a pause to thank my fellow PBJ's: Roz, Alicia, Kathy, and Deb. I'm so grateful to have you all as my friends and supporters.

Hey Gina - Thanks so much for the comment! :) And thanks for introducing me to Joann's work (great post). I really like her perspectives and how random her compositions are. Totaly agree about the space thing! :)
