i think the illustrations in this book go so nicely with some of the mugs in yesterday’s post that it would only be right to make this classic picture book today’s bookpile feature. are you familiar with ‘rosie’s walk’? its a bit of a classic, library staple here in australia, along with all of pat hutchins books. because its still in print and very popular here i don’t want to give too much away, but rather show you some fab illustrations and urge you to go buy your own copy!

i think the illustrations are so charming. they remind me of the detailed fine line work of some scandinavian ceramic designers. above is a detail of a sweet snail and some of those fabulous leaves!
watch out rosie! i like her feathers and the papyrus-like flowers.
love the naughty sneaky fox’s detailed pelt. and if wagons were that groovy i’d be a farmer! would you read farm! pilgrim?
more wonderful flowers and insects
don’t you think you should buy your own copy?
