Children's Literature

I am running another reading group at present and every single book nominated was a children's classic. As I have just completed my final illustration, I thought it time I shared them here:

Max frolics with a Wild Thing in "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak
Mr Tumnus parades towards you, umbrella, parcels and tail in hand. He's stepped straight from the pages of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by CS Lewis.

The last free unicorn screams as the Red Bull comes charging towards her in "The Last Unicorn" by Peter S Beagle.

A Cloud man has failed to hail on the peaches parade, as it skips under the rainbow and away, in "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl.
And Arriety writes in her diary from "The Borrowers" by Mary Norton.

My nominated title was "Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH". I should re-read and illustrate it myself, actually. Jolly good book!

Love the one of the Last Unicorn; it's definitely a favorite one of mine :)
