I was thrilled today when this colorful book illustrated by André da Loba arrived! André da Loba is a maker of images, toys, animations, and is an amazing storyteller. He was one of the first, and also the best, teacher I had studying illustration at Parsons. André’s work shows so much illustration can be: in class he brought to life painted wooden blocks, built cardboard animals, and painted with brooms on huge paper. This book is no exception to André’s brilliance. LER +
