Jeremy's Favorite Picture Book of 2008
Arghhh! My favorite picture book of 2008? I can only pick one? This has to be the toughest post of the year. I think I have to go with Patrick McDonnell's South. It is such a sweet and simple tale and those expressive eyes get me every time.
Little Brown says about it, "When a little bird awakens to find that all of his friends and family have gone south for the winter, it takes a surprising friendship with Mooch the cat to help him find his way. This is a wordless and profoundly moving story--by the creator of the beloved comic strip Mutts--that explores being lost and found, crossing boundaries, saying goodbye, and broadening horizons."
If you didn't catch my first review, you can check it out to read more on South. I'm going to log off now before I become emotionally distressed and start apologizing to the other picture books.
