Llama Llama Red Pajama
by Anna Dewdney
This tender scene is taken from Llama Llama Red Pajama, the first book in author and illustrator Anna Dewdney’s beloved and bestselling picture book series starring a plucky little llama and his mama. The illustration features Mama and Baby Llama reading a bedtime story, a nightly ritual familiar to many parents and children. The print would be a sweet addition to any child’s room, and Dewdney’s expressive brushstrokes and rich hues shine when paired with a simple white frame.
Mitford at the Fashion Zoo
by Donald Robertson
Dubbed the “Andy Warhol of Instagram,” author and illustrator Donald Robertson combines simple line drawings with brightly hued paints and gaffer tapes to create cheeky illustrations. His debut picture book, Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, stars a stylish giraffe who longs for a job with the glamorous COVER magazine. This print, shown here in an antiqued gold frame that perfectly complements Mitford, is on the smaller size and a great addition to a gallery wall or bookshelf.
Dragons Love Tacos
by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri
This print, from the New York Times bestselling Dragons Love Tacos, is already a collection favorite! The book tells the kooky tale of what goes wrong when dragons accidentally eat spicy salsa at a taco party, and we love how this illustration brings the book’s quirky humor right to your wall. Paired with a simple white frame, the watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil illustrations really pop — the print would look great in the room of a dragon (or taco!) lover, young or old.
Max and Marla
by Alexandra Boiger
Alexandra Boiger, who most recently teamed up with author Chelsea Clinton to illustrate the New York Times bestselling picture book She Persisted, made her author-illustrator debut with Max and Marla. The book features a lovable duo of aspiring Olympians, and these prints showcase its stars and the themes of perseverance and friendship seen throughout. Boiger’s ink and watercolor art pairs perfectly with the antiqued silver frames the prints are shown in here.
