Trunk to Trunklet by Jorge LujaanThis is a book about animal mommies and babies that is funny, lively, poetic, and deeply intriguing. The art was made using frottage, hand drawing, and computer techniques. The textures produced aredeep and immersive yet immediate, drawing the reader into the rich visual world of the book.Jorge Lujan is a writer, musician, and architect who was born in Cordoba, Argentina, and lives in Mexico City, Mexico. He has published poetry, comics, and stories for children.Mandana Sadat is a French children's book author and illustrator. She lives and works near Paris, and she studied illustration at the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg. Her works has been published in France and many other countries.
The artwork was made, in part, by inking interestingly textured objects and then pressing paper onto them, a technique children will want to try for themselves.
The art was made using a technique called collagraphy. The textures produced are deep and immersive yet immediate, drawing the reader into the rich visual world of the book.
This expressive, delicate and intimate series of portraits of mothers and babies creates a chain of images of love that envelopes and nurtures young readers age two and up.
Textured black-ink prints with spots of color on creamy, thick paper add to the richness of the experiences portrayed in this collection of 11 poems . . . The bold, relief-print illustrations with bright patches of color bolster the offbeat, playful atmosphere. -- Jeanne McDermott, Booklist
