Monday (on a Tuesday)

Monday by Anne Herbauts is a children's picture book I recently picked up from the NGV bookshop in Melbourne (a hard place to leave empty-handed!)
Monday is a lovely little penguin who loves to hang around with his best friends Today and Tomorrow. This trio practice the piano together, and love to play outside in the gentle spring, summer and autumn seasons.

The cold of winter is a different story. On one breezy winter's day poor Monday's house is blown away in a snowstorm. The landscape is covered in snow, and Monday disappears.
Anne Herbauts is a Belgian writer / illustrator who combines a variety of mediums and embossed paper techniques to create the moody and beautiful illustrations in this book.
Monday is published by Tate Publishing, London 2009.

I'm off to track down more of Anne's lovely books!
