Top Ten Tuesday meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ‘Ten Books To Read If You Are In The Mood For X’ I decided I’ll introduce you some of my favorite illustrated books. I’m doing this post with videos (mostly) because otherwise there’s no explaining how gorgeous these books are:

  1. WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi (illustrated by Chris Riddell)
    WondLa consists of three books: The Search for WondLa, A Hero For Wondla and The Battle for WondLa. All three books are illustrared by wonderful Chris Riddell.
  2. The Sleeper and the Spindle: Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell
  3. Goth Girl by Chris Riddell
    (So because this blog post is not about Riddell, no more his books, even if books illustrated by him are always gorgeous.)
  4. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
    “What if took part of the text out” …yeah I can see what happened there. The Invention of Hugo Cabret is amazing book, it’s unimaginable how Selznick tells the story nearlyt without words, just using pictures.
  5. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

  6. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
  7. The Last Hero (Discworld #27) by Terry Pratchett. Illustrated by Paul Kidby
  8. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (The Tales of Dunk and Egg #1-3) by George R.R. Martin
  9. The 13½ Lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers

  1. Matilda by Roald Dahl
    And really ANY book by Roald Dahl with Quentin Blakes’ illustrations.

What are your favorite illustrated books? Happy TTT!
