Spotlight on Illustrators: Jon J. Muth

Jon J. Muth is a writer and illustrator. He hasn’t racked up near the number of books as Selznick and Hawkes, but his style is beautiful. My first encounter with his books was the Caldecott Honor book, Zen Shorts. Since, I have looked for all of the others. Each has something special to offer. The watercolor paintings are all lovely. The books are serious, with a lesson to teach, but also with simplicity and humor.
