A Blogoversary and the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2013

Today is the 7th blogoversary of Kurious Kitty's Kurio Kabinet! That's right, the blog has been going strong since this day in 2006! This post brings the total number to 1,772! The great thing about a library blog is that there's always something to write about--the world is an interesting place and books continue to be published! Today we'll look at illustrated books.

Last week, The New York Times issued its annual list of "Best Illustrated Children's Books".

Here are the ten titles. Illustrators are listed, if the author is not also illustrator, and the call numbers of those we have in our collection are included.
Becker, Aaron. Journey. [JP BEC]

Blexbolex. Ballad.

Britt, Fanny. Jane, the Fox and Me (illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault).

Dematons, Charlotte. Holland.

Floca, Brian. Locomotive. [JP FLO]

Nelson, Kadir. Nelson Mandela. [J B MAN]

Sendak, Maurice. My Brother’s Book. [808 SEN]

Snicket, Lemony. The Dark, (illustrated by Jon Klassen). [JP SNI]

Uman, Jennifer and Valerio Vidali. Jemmy Button.

Ungerer, Tomi. Fog Island. [JP UNG]
Not all the titles listed each year on the NY Times' list are necessarily ones that appeal to kids, but, for those interested in art, they may be worth looking at!


  1. Happy Blogoversary Kurious Kitty and many many more!!

  2. Many thanks to my loyal Staff readers, and on some days, probably my only readers! ;-)
