Run Wild

Written and Illustrated by David Covell

Hey, You.
Sky’s blue!
(forget your shoes)
OPEN
That door and…
Sprout, you’re out!
Chase the wind…
Can you grab it?
Go ahead…
Race a rabbit!

Oh, my goodness! This book is so JOYOUS! It made me want to take off my shoes and splash in the mud. The illustrations are so unique. I don’t think I have seen anything quite like them. Watercolor, big, bold, bright, impressionistic, absolutely captivating. I cannot say enough good things about this book. I hope it gets recognition when the awards are announced. Adventurous and celebratory.
