The simplicity of this book may make you think the story was easy to write and the illustrations were easy to do. But let me tell you, it only looks simple because these guys are SO GOOD at their jobs. The story is simple enough for the littlest kids, and the illustrations are striking. The cut and ripped paper, the scruffy nose, the lines etched with a blade, the whites and blues. AMAZING. I added it to my library. Had to have it:)
