2009's Best in Children's Book Illustrations

Illustration by Shaun Tan

The Book Review has an annual roundup of the best in children's books from an illustrative point.  Books for kids are crucial for learning the language, and if you can lure them in with outstanding visuals, all the better.  NYT has the ten best, including this one from Shaun Tan's "Tales From Outer Suburbia."  Tan also won a slot in 2007 for the phenomenal, wordless "The Arrival."


I was lucky enough to be able to read "The Arrival" and I was mesmerized by the illustrations and the story. Good to hear he's getting recognition for it!
