BiographyBarbara Lehman has illustrated many books for children. Born in Chicago, Barbara attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where she earned a BFA in communication design. A full-time illustrator, Barbara says, “Books and art have always held the strongest attraction for me. I have always felt drawn to commercial art' because of its ability to reach many people. I like the idea of being part of the media in a meaningful and thoughtful way, especially with children as the audience.” She now lives in Philmont, New York.

The best wordless picture book ever! From the inside flap:
The Red Book begins with a girl walking to school when she spots in the snow a red-covered book, which she recovers and carries in her book bag... and so the journey begins. As you turn each page you'll experience a new adventure through a picture. Pictures tell a story with your interpretation of it! Here's the idea:"This book is about a book. A magical red book without any words - just like the one in your hands right now. So what are you waiting for? Turn the page to experience a new kind of adventure through the power of story. In illustrations of rare detail and surprise, The Red Book crosses oceans and continents to deliver one girl into a new world of possibility, where a friend she's never met is waiting. And as with the best of books, at the conclusion of the story, the journey is not over."

A delightful book! This book is a good choice for introducing the genre of magical fantasy to young readers... plus there isn't even a title on the front of the book! I really liked this one... brilliant!
I hope you enjoy your stay at LadyD Books.
Thanks for stopping by!
