These two books have that little something that make them stand out among all the others.
Is it that once upon …hook?
Once Upon a Rainy Day
By Edouard Manceau
first published in French as C’est l’Histoire d’une Histoire
translated by Christelle Morelli and Susan Ourlou
This is the story of a story which always happens on sunny days. On rainy days, it becomes a totally different story as none of the characters go out. This explains their absence from the illustrations.
Once Upon a Memory
by Nina Laden and illustrated by Renata Liwska
Through beautiful heartwarming illustrations, a child wonders if what he sees remembers what it once was. A fuzzy, cozy story!
