Day 8:
Picture Book Illustrator (and author) #2:
David Wiesner
I fell in love with David Wiesner when I was in college and saw Tuesday in the book store.
His work is awe-inspiring, beautiful, magical and absolutely amazing.


I've spent years pouring over his work as an adult,
and I can't wait to share it with my children and my sibling's children.
Whenever I buy pictures books for kids,
there is ALWAYS a Steven Kellogg, 
and there is ALWAYS a David Wiesner :)

His website is really great too...
I particularly enjoy his entry called "The Beginning"

His books usually have very few words in them,
but then don't need them. 
Not one bit.
Here are a few of my favorites:
