The Lazy Bear, Brian Wildsmith

I always love me some illustrations by Brian Wildsmith! His work is exuberant,
expressive and loaded with glorious color - a perfect formula for a children's picture book. I just bought this book, The Lazy Bear, at Goodwill. A small corner of the book is cut off for some reason, but I bought it anyway as I didn't have it and couldn't pass it up. The Lazy Bear must have been written by Wildsmith too, as I don't see any other credits in the book.

To visit Brian Wildsmith's website, which is as exuberant as his work, click here.
