Book Review #1346 Brother Sun, Sister Moon by Katherine Paterson
Book Review #1346
Brother Sun, Sister Moon by Katherine Paterson, illustrated by Pamela Dalton
Rating: two stars (out of four)
The illustrations were really interesting. I was even more intrigued to see they were scherenschnitte - paper cutting! All of the illustrations were one marvelous paper design and then the illustrator painted over them with watercolors. Impressive! The newer rendition of the prayer of Assisi was good as well. While I enjoyed this book and thought it showcased a rather remarkable layer of skill in the design; it's not something I'd see buying or reading over and over. I'd probably still recommend it.
