Peter Brown 2010
When I was a child, I once found a frog in the woods and brought it home to be my pet. My mom was not happy. "Would you like it if a wild animal made YOU its pet?" she asked. To which I replied, "Absolutely!"
I love the colors and the wood grain illustration on each page.
Here's a cute interview with Peter Brown that shows his next Lucy the Bear book. He's also the author/illustrator of The Curious Garden.
