Perfect Picture Book Friday
Who Wants a Tortoise? (Alfred A. Knofp, 2016) by Dave Keane and illustrated by K.G. Campbell is a fun twist on the pet picture book.
The little girl wants a puppy, but she gets a tortoise instead. She had plans for a puppy. She had names for a puppy. Tortoises can’t play fetch or give kisses. How can you have an adventure with them?
Dave Keane is an author/illustrator. You can read his bio here. It’s fun that he and his family have a tortoise.
I love the extra in the endpapers that K.G. Campbell included as well as the expressions on this little girl. He’s also an author/illustrator. You can see the variety of his illustration styles just by looking at his book covers.
