Bridget Fidget

Bridget Fidget and The Most Perfect Pet: Written and Illustrated by Joe Berger
The more I read this picture book, the more the character, story, and style grows on me. Bridget is so exuberant, passionate, and upbeat. Her personality bursts out of every gorgeous gesture drawing, highlighted by white space and limited-palette backgrounds.

The balance of inky drawing marks, solids, dot patterns, and crisp type gives the book a classic and modern feel all at once.
But of course none of this would matter if there wasn't heart and humor, of which there is oodles. We'll be looking for the sequel, Bridget Fidget Hold on Tight next time we're at the library.
Be sure to check out Joe Berger's other books, comics, and animations at his website. Also, this cool book trailer for Bridget Fidget Hold on Tight. Enjoy!
