what will hatch?
What Will Hatch? may be the loveliest children's book I've seen in years. Jennifer Ward and Susie Ghahremani have crafted a smart, beautiful little book cleverly using diecut shapes to carry the reader from page to page, egg-laying creature to creature. The artwork is handpainted onto wood, and there's a subtle texture and almost tactile quality to them. Any of the pages could easily be at home framed on a wall, but we're lucky to have them in one sweet package.
