This is sort of like trying to choose a favorite children, but—Frog and Toad! But I have a sneaky feeling that one of those is behind the curtain. And probably something by Jon Agee and something by Steve Jenkins. We need titles here, Liz! It is fun to take a look at your website and illustrations!

But surely you must include at least one Babette Cole book?!! I just found your website.
