Illustration Friday: Spent

We Are Cousins illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

From We are Cousins / Somos Primos: after enjoying a day filled with frolicking, feasting, and festivities, these little cousins are completely spent and ready to enjoy a good book.  And as we all know, time spent reading is time well spent.

Where all my money went this month.

On a related note, here’s a photo that embodies this week’s Illustration Friday theme as well: it’s how I spent all my money this month! This October held several children’s book events here in MN, and I went a little crazy at each one.  Thankfully, one is allowed to go a little crazy when book-buying is involved, especially if these are going to be given as gifts to kids. 

Have a great Halloween, everyone!

One is always allowed to go overboard on book buying

You and I have ridiculously similar taste in books. This is entirely too tempting!
