Book and Illustration - Leo Timmers

I have at home two big fans of Leo Timmers books! The older one is already a bit outgrowing them, but the 1,5 old is now becoming really fascinated by Leo's illustrations. I think the book "Wie rijdt" ( Who's driving ) and "Diepzee Dokter Diederik" ( Deep Sea doctor Dean) are sort of classic books in the Dutch children world. The illustrations are really appealing to kids and the stories are so funny! I really like to read it and make all the funny noises with my boys ;-)  Leo Timmers was born in Belgium (1970) and he is not only a graphic designer, he actually writes the stories! His books have been published and translated in many countries. In the Netherlands you can get the books from Clavis . It is a real treat! 
I wish you all a great weekend!

Baby Buba is a family of 4 soft monsters - Little Mouse, Medium Rabit, Big Worm and Huge Frog. Children drew them and Maria Dziewolska sewed it all together. She is a graduate from University of Art in Poland and Politechnico di Milano in Milan. Buby Buba will go this year to Milan to represent city of Poznan.

Its fantastically soft and funny toy!  Don't you think? I'm smiling only looking at it! ;-)
