A couple of weeks ago, when I was cleaning the family bookshelf, I saw this beautiful gem of a book and I just had to share some of the amazing illustrations. I don’t recall reading this as a child but it may have been one of my older siblings books.
It’s called The Magic Wallpaper by Frank Francis. It’s a lovely book about a boy who gets new wallpaper in his room and one night he can’t sleep and goes on a journey through the wallpaper trying to find his way back to his bed.
Here are some of my favourite illustrations from the book
Aren’t they beautiful? I think because I’m not very good at illustration I really appreciate when something has been done so very well. It’s also a very sweet story. I’ll definitely be hanging on to this for my future kiddos.
Do you like this kind of illustration? What is your favourite children’s book? (I’ll have to share mine one day)
