A River by Marc Martin

I love Marc Martin's illustrations.

His previous three picture books have become some of my favourites - A Forest and The Curious Explorer's Illustrated Guide to Exotic Animals A - Z and Max.

I also follow Martin's Instagram account so that I can get my regular fix of his colourful view of life!

His latest picture book, A River, is a story about imagination, the environment & change.

Gentle, poetic words send us floating down the river. We glide by a city, through farmland, a jungle and eventually out to a stormy sea.

Each page is full of details & patterns and beautiful colour palettes.
I could pour over the pages for hours.

The front cover has been embossed which adds a lovely tactile element & extends the flowing, gliding sensation. I can't keep my fingers from running over each plant & letter.

Martin has, yet again, created another picture book for me to love!

  1. I think I've only read one of his book, I should read more. I wish I had time in my life for instagram following, but I just don't.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
