BIG SELLERS/UBS FAVORITES: WORDLESS
Wordless picture books, you had me at " "
THE TREE HOUSE by Marije and Ronald Tolman, Boyds Mills Press 2010
THE SURPRISE by Sylvia Van Ommen, Front Street 2007 (Lauren can't resist a sheep on a moped)
THE CHICKEN THIEF by Beatrice Rodriguez, Enchanted Lion 2010 (I am in love with the book's wide screen/letter box trim size)
Earlier, the UBS ladies had talked about how beautiful art in a picture book wasn't enough, the story had to be stellar, too. Well, although there are no words in these, the stories told in the pictures are powerful—intricate, poetic, hilarious, or surprising, respectively.
There's one more picture book category that's been doing well at UBS, plus a peek at the titles Lauren and staff are excited about for Fall.
