Beloved children’s book illustrator Alice Provensen is 97 today – celebrate with her wonderful vintage adaptation of Homer for kids

This is from a while ago. But! Homer for children! Kids need more cyclops in their lives.

Even the dreamer thinks this is messed up. Look at those skeptical sleeping eyebrows.

Okay but the most magical thing in this picture is that mermaid’s ability to swim upright whilst grabbing on to both mer-breasts. Not an easy task, my friends.

Parrots Over Puerto Rico — wonderful illustrated children’s book celebrates the spirit of conservation through the heartening story of one of Earth’s most beautiful bird species, an underdog of geopolitics and evolution.

Illustrators are such talented beasts.

This is a good book because it shows how you can be ugly and still move on.”

Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter!
Today we celebrate the 148th birthday of the famous children’s author, Beatrix Potter, who is mainly known for writing The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Here at the University of Iowa, we are fortunate enough to have a copy of one of the first printings of this charming tale, which according to our acquisition papers, was previously owned by Potter’s niece!
This particular book was printed in a grouping of 250, and is widely believed to have been done so in 1901. However, the acquisition papers accompanying this copy state that the author’s records say it was privately printed in 1900, and later issued in 1901. This copy is also interesting as it contains the later omitted pages showing how Peter Rabbit’s father met his demise by way of pie.
