Titles, please. Not just photos, esp those on which we cannot see the titles!:)

Anush's drawing is lovely. I love the artlessness of that grass- looks so natural.

i remember that i took a suitcase, when i went for the bookfair...
deals were steals. it was really close to home, as well...

Oh you are a person after my own heart! I take suitcases to book fairs, and I barely finish going through the children's books by the time everyone else has seen the entire fair!

Inch by inch - Leo Lionni? His books are a treat.

And oh, hi MiM! Haven't been to your place a long while (nor to mine either sadly!)
