Tickly Toes Hits Shelves this Week!
Tickly Toes, a bedtime board book written by Susan Hood and illustrated by Barroux, was released from Kids Can Press on August 1. The book has received praise from Kirkus Reviews, which calls the book, “a lovely addition to the bedtime storybook shelf.” The review commends Barroux’s illustrations, writing:
“In an 8-inch-square format, Barroux’s large-scale, double-page spreads appear almost life-size, and the baby seems to be looking directly out at the readers. Rendered in acrylic and outlined in pencil, the deceptively simple cartoons perfectly match the action and convey all the emotions of this happy family.”
