It’s SPRING!…Lets Go to the HARDWARE STORE! Launch!

Iwai Hardware Cover   tools IWAI

We all want to get things fixed up for spring! and especially when moving into a new home for the family.  So some of the storybook family says Let’s Go to the Hardware Store in this most delightful book from Anne Rockwell and illustrated by our own MELISSA IWAI! Published by Christy Ottaviano from Henry Holt……Happy Launch Day!

Melissa put so much detail into this book with many cut papers carefully placed just so.  That fun inclusive detail is what readers will go back again and again to see and re-see.  As their parents work with the tools we all must have, the kids will remember seeing them ‘at the Hardware Store.’  Such fun!   Good for boys and girls (and parents!) of all sizes, ages and ethnic backgrounds…. make it a family trip…….!

    It is a really beautiful book, I did not realize it was done with cut paper. Good luck with the new book, very exciting.

    Looks cool. I was thinking of getting into illustrating myself as I’m doing an art course. Intrigued to see your new book come out (:

  4. Love the illustration!
