Cat and Fish, my new book crush...

Sometimes I feel silly when I share a cool book that is new to me because I think perhaps it's old news to the rest of you and I've been in the dark, foolishly, until now.

(I'm thinking especially our Australian friends are gonna know all about this one because it won the Picture Book of the Year award there in 2004.)

But guess what, I'm kind of in love with this book, so I'm going for it!! Here's my favorite book (so far) that we brought home from the library last week...

The sweet simple story, Cat and Fish, is written by Joan Grant. (I should mention I'm a bit of a sucker for books about unlikely friendships.) The absolutely stunning artwork comes from Neil Curtis.

I could seriously stare at these illustrations for hours!  How much do you love them?

I will definitely be looking for the sequel, Cat and Fish Go to See.

So fantastic, right?  I'd love to see more of Neil Curtis' illustrations. So, if you're one of those folks to whom this is old news, please shed some light. Which books should I look for next?

I love it! Do you love it?
