It's Illustration Tuesday. Comics have been an ongoing love of children for decades, regardless of what adults thought. They've come an incredibly long way in the last 25 years. "TOON Books are the first high-quality comics designed for children ages four and up. Each book in the collection is just right for reading to the youngest child but perhaps more remarkable: this is the first collection ever designed to offer newly-emerging readers comics they can read themselves." That's from the website of Toon Books. They've just received a big honor--see that here. Check out this small and unique publisher here. It is a project of Francoise Mouly and her husband Art Speigelman (read about them here.) Listen to an extensive interview with them here that is conducted by Susan Raab.
