Why I like Children’s Literature

One of my dreamed jobs is be a book editor. I love books: typography, paper, design, illustrations, wisdom words, clever characters, good stories. Take a book in your hands: smell it, touch it, and sense it. 218 more words

I’ve known of Shaun Tan for quite a while now without actually reading any of his (picture) books / graphic novels / masterpieces, but it’s only when you actually experience the almost achingly beautiful world of Shaun Tan that you will fully understand what people are raving about. 257 more words
