As promised, I’m back with more children’s book illustration postcards–swaps 6-10. The postcards below are from various parts of the world and include some of my favorite characters and/or themes–teddy bears, Classic Pooh, Moomin, and Alice in Wonderland. I was very pleased to be introduced to Rosalie and Truffle (the pink pig and the brown boar–see public swap #7). Amazon’s description:
Love at first sight does exist! Rosalie and Truffle fall in love when they meet under an apple tree. But their well-meaning friends and relatives discourage them from meeting again. As time goes by, and Rosalie and Truffle improve their lifestyles with yoga and dancing, they realize that neither material growth nor physical perfection guarantees happiness. At last they return to the apple tree and reunite.
Rosalie and Truffle, Truffle and Rosalie is an endearing story of love and trust, with wonderful illustrations. And the story is narrated from both points of view: flip the book over to read the story from the other perspective. This is a charming gift book, perfect for Valentine’s Day or for any special occasion.
Aside from their story of self-discovery and love, they remind me of strawberry and chocolate ice cream. Yum!
Many of the participants in this “new” series of children’s book illustration swaps also participated when Marjan hosted the swaps. They are so appreciative of the swaps’ return and that makes hosting them extra pleasurable. Thanks, Marjan, for laying a strong foundation; thanks swappers, for joining in and spreading postcard happiness!
I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with swap #11.
Until then…enjoy these!
