Speaking of Books... New from Puffin Classics and Daniela J Terrazzini!

Speaking of books and how much I love them, not just reading them but holding them and looking at them and admiring their lovely covers and creamy white pages.... Look at these absolutely gorgeous editions of classic children's books new from Penguin Classics and their children's division, Puffin. They already publish the best looking paperback editions of the classics (with great extras) at a very low price ($4.99) and now they are publishing them in these spectacular hardcover, dust jacket-free editions for kids and adults. The most exciting part is that these covers have been created by none other than Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini, illustrator of Steven Arnston's wonderful middle-grade book The Wikkeling and Jane Yolen's lovely fairy tale, The Seeing Stick. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the paperback classics, all of which have cover art by famous kid's book illustrators and introductions by popular children's book authors!




Coralie Bickford-Smith is the illustrator for the equally lovely adult classics from Penguin. I discovered some of these images over at a really cool blog full of fantastic pictures,  Tinza's Tiddley-Bits.
