It seems like the buzz has quieted a bit around this book, but for my money it features some of the most stunning paintings of the year. I remember reading a Ladybug Girl book where the title character is at the beach and being momentarily stunned by how well David Soman rendered water. It seems like unexpected artistic techniques fare well on the Best Illustrated list, and this book takes etching to a whole different place.
This companion to 2007’s Mary and the Mouse, the Mouse and Mary is as rich as illustration gets. Filed Under: Articles About Travis JonkerTravis Jonker is an elementary school librarian in Michigan. The bold three-dimensional collage paintings bring in elements of the text to create an immersive experience.


Loaded with details, it’s artwork that makes you believe in this unlikely friendship between a girl and a mouse. He writes reviews (and the occasional article or two) for School Library Journal and is a member of the 2014 Caldecott committee.
I just don’t know how the committee could open that book and not include it on the Best Illustrated list. Combine one part kid's books, one part school librarianship, a splash of absurdity and you get 100 Scope Notes. I’ve enjoyed recommending the latter to people at our children’s bookstore and they are always blown away by it! Some of my favorite art from last year was Flight of the Honey Bee, Cub’s Big World, The Story of Fish and Snail, What the Heart Knows, and Here Come the Humpbacks.


I haven’t seen Sam and Dave or Hug Machine, so I’m looking forward to checking them out! Covering the four seasons along a river with no words – just page after page of beautiful little watercolor paintings.
