Book 301: Duke Day for Annie

Duke Day for Annie, by Agy Wilson, 2014.

The illustrations for this book are intriguing.  They seem to glow from within, and are modeled and shaped to perfection, as if they were 3D renderings.  Only, unlike 3D renderings, there is a softness and sweetness to them that would be difficult to sculpt.  As I said, intriguing.

There also are some intriguing lines in the text.  My favorites include onomatopoeia:  whip, snap, chug, ding.  And the story, also, is sweet, without being "precious".  Clearly, the story came from the author's heart.
