Bear hugs, that is :o)

This book by Nicholas Oldland came through the Library the other day, so I had to bring it home!

It's a cute story, and I love the illustration style

What's not to like about a hugging bear holding a flower?

And this

Lucky rabbit!

Of course Amazon has better pictures with their Look Inside feature.

This is not a Star Wars reference!

Along with the cups and books I've shown from my find the other night at work was a dog-eared, binding-broken copy of an old elementary school reader. I love these books primarily for their style of illustrations, and have a small handful here that I've picked up over the years.

Long Long Ago, by Marjorie Pratt and Mary Meighen, illustrated by Carol Crithfield, was published by Benj. H. Sanborn and Company and copyrighted 1939. The end plate carries a school stamp from LaCrosse, Wisconsin, is numbered '17' and is dated January 2, 1940. That said, pictures follow. The pictures here are linked to larger pictures still.

All in all that was a great night.

A video I found on Michel Gagne's webpages. I love this man's artwork :o)
Check out his other animations here, including his work with Ratatouille.

This was made in 1986, when furry was starting to reawaken in my heart.  If you visit his site, be sure to check out Rex!

(could I possibly add any more links?)

The picture below is part of a vignette from a poem called The Hare and was found in the book Sunshine At Home, 1883, by the Review and Herald Publishing House. The book was my grandfathers and may have been given to him new when he was three years old. Searching the 'net I find this poem is also called The Little Hare and is sometimes attributed a Mrs. Hawkshaw. The complete poem and picture are below the cut.

This book came across the desk at work, yesterday: Tom Rabbit, by Martin Waddell and illustrated by my favorite bear illustrator, Barbara Firth. As I'm a 'Tom,' the title (and picture) leapt out at me.  I didn't see this listed when looking for Firth's bear stories, so it surprised me when it hopped up on the counter. It's another 'lost and found' story of a plush bunny left alone among the wild rabbits. The illustrations are lovely, soft watercolors and graphite.

I posted earlier on [ profile] animal_bears  about a sweet bear book that Alison Edgson illustrated. After reviewing her blog I found this lovely rabbit pic! It has a familiar quality, but I can't quite place it!

Beautifully done! I've tried to sign onto her blog using my openID but it didn't take. She hasn't updated since last fall, though, so maybe it's no longer in use.
