'A book is a dream that you hold in your hand'

Neil Gaiman

I have always had a great love for picture books. I first bought them mainly because of the beautiful illustrations, but when I started reading them to my children, I came to understand the importance of a good story, the interplay of the illustrations with the text and how it can reinforce each other. This symbiosis is unique to picture books and it is why this genre appeals to me so much.
