I "happened upon" this illustrator - she was new-to-me - but oh, what a wonderful find!! Kristi has illustrated a lot of books for children, but we have one particular favorite at our house: Chinese Lanterns!! It is a small book - a beginning reader - but mighty in size!! What we love about it are the directions to make your own lanterns!! But the illustrations are perfect for the story and it's just the right size for Chloe! AND, just a secret here, if you contact Kristi personally - she will sign it for your child!!! You NEED to go and check her out!
