Mr Lucas

Halibut Jackson
I've been so dismayed by the lack of decent books for young children. About fifty percent of the books we find for the boys at the library have lame illustrations, text or both. Because of this I'm always overjoyed when we find a book that is engaging for the boys and not maddening for me to read.
I really love David Lucas's illustrations. We got his book 'Halibut Jackson' at the library sale and I thought it must have been about 40 years old since the illustrations reminded me of Andy Warhols early drawings from when he was a fashion illustrator. As it turns out the book was published eight years ago and he has about a dozen other books that I'd love to check out for the boys.
