Picture Book of the Month for July 2010

I want to include two books for the Picture Book of the Month this time.
They are by the same author and illustrator, Hiawyn Oram and Satoshi
Kitamura, and even have a similar character. The books are both based on
a boy’s imagination in dealing with negative feelings. In the Attic is the solution to boredom. Angry Arthur is about coping with anger. The imagination and illustrations are fabulous. A little like a Japanese version of David Wiesner.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I love David Wiesner so any books that emulate him are ones that I’d be interested in checking out. The one on anger management also sounds interesting!

    I would be interested to know what you think after reading the book. The style is quite different. But the details and creativity remind me of Wiener’s Free Fall and Flotsam.
