Henry in Love, by Peter McCarty

Peter McCarty on the subject of love

I love Peter McCarty’s illustrations. Jeremy Draws a Monster is another of my favorites in this same style, but he is also well known for the more subdued softness of Hondo & Fabian.

I love the line with the power to be seen through milk cartons, the same line that drives my favorite coworker absolutely crazy. Henry in Love, from Balzer & Bray gets my vote for best school lunch, as well as best interspecies first love picture book.
