Hilary Half of these don't appear to be picture books at all... did 2 lists get merged?


message 2: by Fjóla (new)

Fjóla This could be a nice list, I love Graeme Base for instance, but a couple of the most prominent books have been placed on this list by 'author review circles'. Either way, it's hard to imagine anyone would "look at them for the art". One of them, A Pet Banana, looks as if illustrated by a five year old, and the other, Turtle Wish (judging by the kindle excerpt, not really a picture book), has computer generated images that hardly qualify as art. The list would look more authentic if pruned of these.

You can do it yourself; just delete the book from your votes (and if you are the only voter, the book will disappear, given time).
