Sadly, Leo Dillon passed away this summer, one of the many famous children’s book creators who left this earth. The Dillons have a very unique style that I find fascinating and robust. Their work has a unique style all its own, but they have chosen to illustrate a wide variety of picture books. Below are some of my favorites…

Mother Goose: Numbers on the Loose


The Sorcerer’s Apprentice


Why Mosquitos Buzz in People’s Ears (Caldecott)


Rap a Tap Tap (about a jazz player–a fun read aloud!)


To Everything There is a Season (Ecclesiastes 3; interesting and worth perusing)

Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch
