On the Sixth Day of Christmas . . .

Author Illustrator Grace Lin and her husband Robert got several illustrators to decorate snowflakes which were auctioned off to raise money for cancer research. in order for more people than the lucky new owners to enjoy the snowflakes they created this beautiful book. You can read more about it here

Even the end papers are amazing
It's fun to look for illustrations by some of your favorite illustrators like this one by Ian Falconer.
Since the proceeds are going to such a great cause, you have a good excuse to add it to your collection!

I love that there's someone else out there who notices the end papers.

Your blog is great... just discovered it tonight and can't wait to keep reading it.
