The Bog Baby

The Bog Baby

Sometimes I suspect I fall so in love with an illustrator’s style, that I’ll like anything they do. But with Jeanne Willis you get a number of different illustrators, so I don’t know why I keep falling in love.

What I was saying about having picture books read to you, applies to this one as well, because Jeanne read this herself. What could be better?

The Bog Baby is her most recent book, and with adorable pictures by Gwen Millward. Bog Babies are round and blue and jelly-like, and they are SO lovable. This story is about loving and learning to let go.

I want a Bog Baby!

  1. Ah, the bog babies. I admit to standing in some high-power office up at Penguin with tears coursing down my cheeks when the bog babies had to swim away…don’t know how she does it, but Jeanne manages to write books that are hilariously funny, philosophical, and deeply moving all at the same time. My ten year old loves this one.

  2. You’ll make me cry, now.
