About A Perfect Day:
Carin Berger's exquisite collages illuminate, from dawn to dusk, the perfect winter day.
Carin Berger is an award-winning designer and illustrator. The Little Yellow Leaf was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book. She is the creator of Ok Go!, Not So True Stories & Unreasonable Rhymes and All Mixed Up, and the illustrator of Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, by Jack Prelutsky, and Trailblazers, by Bobbi Katz. She won the Society of Illustrator Founder's Award in 2006. Carin Berger lives with her family in New York City.
About Baby Penguins Everywhere:
At first the mama penguin is happy for the company. Until she realizes that taking care of a family is very hard, very tiring work, and what she could really use is just a moment alone. Yet as newcomer Melissa Guion reminds us in her adorable debut picture book, alone time is all well and good, but, it's together time that's best of all.
Melissa Guion lives in Brooklyn, New York. Baby Penguins Everywhere! is her first book. It was selected by The Society of Illustrators for The Original Art 2012, an annual exhibition of the year's best children's illustration. Melissa is now coaxing the baby penguins into a second book, due Spring 2014.
