Winston & George

Gorgeously illustrated, this is the story of a crocodile and a crocodile bird. These animals exist in a symbiotic relationship. Crocodile birds pick leeches and lice from the crocodile's skin and cry out whenever they see danger. In this story, Winston is a patient crocodile, George is a prankster, and their story is both sweet and dramatic.

Red Spider Hero

On a small piece of sidewalk, there once lived a teeming colony of teeny tiny red spiders. These spiders were so tiny that when it rained they never got wet and when people stepped on them they never got squashed.

Even so, they were all quite content living there on the same patch of sidewalk. All except one little spider, who decided that he'd had enough and that the big, wide world was far more suited to him than a teeny tiny strip of sidewalk. So he stamped his feet and hollered and said he would run away. Seeing the little red spider's frustration, his grandfather stepped forward to explore the situation with his grandson and together, in a wonderful shared moment of conversation and imagination, the little red spider succeeds in going off on the grandest adventure ever!

Before I Grew Up

In this picture book, author John Miller weaves a story about unknown artist Giuliano Cucco from the paintings and sketches that he leaves behind. The pictures illustrating the story were selected from Cucco’s vast archive. Through luminescent, emotionally rich images, Miller tells of Cucco’s childhood—one of familial love and the freedom to dream—which carries him into the realization that one day, he will be an artist. An innovative picture book that begins with the paintings and leads into story, this book stands as a celebration of the vastness of the human spirit. It is also an ode to childhood and the flowering that is possible when we are cherished.

The Creation

In this book for children, the artist Giuliano Cucco represents his interpretation of the story of the creation of the world in seven days contained in the first part of Genesis written by Moses with pastel drawings
