Under the Spell of the Moon
Art for Children From the World's Great IllustratorsBook - 2004
American Library Association Notable Books List selection
In this lavish tribute to the art of children's book illustration thirty-three of the world's most noted illustrators have created original works of art based on a favorite childhood text. They have donated the use of their art exclusively for this book so that a royalty on all sales can be given to the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY).
This organization, at the heart of whose mandate lies the promotion of books of the highest quality, has been honoring illustrators through the Hans Christian Andersen Awards for many decades. It is in honor of this work that many of the world's greatest illustrators for children, from Andersen winners to unknown but talented newcomers, have agreed to participate in this celebratory anthology.
