Om forfatteren

Picture book author and illustrator Janell Cannon was born November 3, 1957, in St. Paul, Minnesota. The left-handed artist claims she drew so much in high school that her hand was perpetually black from smearing the ink of her favorite Bic pens. Cannon worked at the Carlsbad Library in southern vis mere California, where she discovered that there were few books about bats available for children, so she decided to make her own. The result, Stellaluna (1994), became a best seller, allowing Cannon to leave her job at the library and write Trupp: A Fuzzhead Tale (1995), and other books. Janell Cannon lives in California.

BL Book Club member Jordan started reading this to H earlier this week, but we finished it today. Stellaluna is a classic (and I didn't realize it was a debut!) about a baby separated from her mother, and feeling confusion and shame at not being able to do the same things as her temporary adoptive family even though there are similarities. The artwork is exquisite (we also picked up [b:Verdi|970061|Verdi|Janell Cannon|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1347311292l/970061._SX50_.jpg|2415351] during this library trip), with pen and ink illustrations of Stellaluna's mother looking for her on the text page across from the full illustration.

Honestly going to go through the reading rainbow books, probably.

Verdi doesn't want to grow up- he likes his yellow with black stripes and his speed, and adults are big, green, and BORING. But, after a series of adventures he can appreciate taking time to stop and rest.

Much like Stellaluna, gorgeous illustrations by the author, along with pen and ink drawings on the text pages.
