This week's addition to the books and zines series is charmingly fun to read and beautifully illustrated by Christian Robinson in his instantly recognisable style, combining paint and collage. The grumpy old man always makes me smile! Robinson has to be one of my favourite modern illustrators. I find it hard to walk past a book with his name on it without bringing it home.
Rain! story by Linda Ashman and pictures by Christian Robinson. Published by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2013.
If you'd like to hear Christian read a little from this book check out this beaut video with him chatting to writer Mac Barnett that I previously posted here.
