Gyo Fujikawa's Little Library, $6.95. Will you LOOK at this? Perfect toddler gift. Perfect shower present. Perfect first birthday present. Just...perfect.


 
'Surprise! Surprise!', $5.95. This book has been republished in board book format after being out of print for 30 years. Perfect for springtime! 


 
Puppies, Pussycats & Other Friends, $5.95. Sweetest book ever! I gave this as a present to a friend, along with:

 


'Baby Animals', $5.95. This one is such a classic. It's so sweet! Everyone with a tiny tot should have it.

So if y'all have been hanging with me for awhile, you know my thoughts on Gyo Fujikawa. (Best illustrator IN THE KNOWN AND UNKNOWN UNIVERSE. Along with Garth Williams. They can have a thumb wrestling match.)

If you have a kid or a grandkid or know a kid or just like cool kid art or just want to BE AWESOME...you'll start getting on the Gyo bandwagon. Me? I'm DRIVING the Gyo bandwagon! I love Gyo so much!

  1. Ummm, I really want these! Really, really! Comfession: I somehow saw that first picture on my blog list and was searching all over your site to find it. Then I realized that perhaps you published it early, accidentally (I have done this several times) So-- here's the point-- if it didn't show up soon I was going to email you and ask you about these books because I thought they looked so great! Hooray! Here they are!!!

    2. I came across Gyo's Little Library set being sold at Christmastime at my local Real Canadian Superstore- sooooo exciting! I also have been buying other Gyo baby board books off Amazon and foisting them upon my nephews and my friends' babies. Not to mention my baby daughter, and the more complex ones for my older daughter. www.vintagebooksfortheveryyoung.blogspot.com
