Description

What did you want to be when you grew up? Colorful and fun, this charming book introduces children to a range of professions, each of which Horace tries his hand at in a special big hat--be it a red fireman's helmet, giant baker's hat, purple circus top hat, or an artist's beret. Whimsical illustrations bring young readers into Horace's world of imagination. Great for children who are learning to read.

Judy Palaferro's stylized illustrations have their roots in both her teenage admiration for rock and roll album covers and the 1980s New York art scene. Palaferro has worked as a print and web designer and as a book buyer in a Colorado toy store, where she began developing artistically with inspiration from Arthur Ransome, Roald Dahl, and teddy bears. Upon returning to New York, Palaferro's fascination with illustration flourished for eight years while she worked as a children's graphic artist and textile designer in the fashion industry. "Horace's Big Hat" displays her beautiful sense of bright and pleasing aesthetics and her love for imagination and children's art. Her first book, "Color Bears," was published by Umbrage Editions in 2010.
