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:
- 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.
- The Sleeper and the Spindle: Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell
- 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.)
- 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.
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
- The Last Hero (Discworld #27) by Terry Pratchett. Illustrated by Paul Kidby
- A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (The Tales of Dunk and Egg #1-3) by George R.R. Martin
- The 13½ Lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers
- Matilda by Roald Dahl
And really ANY book by Roald Dahl with Quentin Blakes’ illustrations.
What are your favorite illustrated books? Happy TTT!
