Today’s book cover pick is The Cats of Tanglewood Forest by author Charles de Lint and illustrator Charles Vess. Why? BECAUSE I LOVE CATS, that’s why.
Here’s a description:
The magic is all around you, if only you open your eyes …
Lillian Kindred spends her days exploring the Tanglewood Forest, a magical, rolling wilderness that she imagines to be full of fairies. The trouble is, Lillian has never seen a wisp of magic in her hills — until the day the cats of the forest save her life by transforming her into a kitten. Now Lillian must set out on a perilous adventure that will lead her through untamed lands of fabled creatures — from Old Mother Possum to the fearsome Bear People — to find a way to make things right.
In this whimsical, original folktale written and illustrated throughout in vibrant full color by two celebrated masters of modern fantasy, a young girl’s journey becomes an enchanting coming-of-age story about magic, friendship, and the courage to shape one’s own destiny.
What do you think? I love the … well, the cats, and the name of the book. And the lush green color and reflection in the water.
Have a great weekend! Hug some kitties. :)
