This picture was taken from the brilliant ‘Princess Hyacinth (the surprising tale of a girl who floated). Every now and again we stumble upon a book at the library that makes me think we should go there a lot more. This book is beautiful in every way. The book layout and design works perfectly with the illustrations and the writing is quirky and wonderful to read. Lane Smith is one of those illustrators I’ve loved forever without really realising it. We’ve enjoyed reading ‘The Stinky Cheeseman‘ since the kids were tiny and it’s still going strong.
