All the Animals Where I Live

Philip C. Stead‘s picture book, All the Animals Where I Live, wanders through life in the 9781626726567.jpgcountry, stream-of-conscious-style, and introduces us to the characters the author (and his ninety-year-old neighbour) sees on any given day. The quiet life, the artistic life, meanders, and so does the story-line of this book, in perfect symmetry to its subject.

And the art is beautiful–that’s truly one of the big joys of picture books, isn’t it? That there’s a story and an art book in one.
