Magic Pencil - Children's Book Illustration: http://portico.bl.uk/whatson/exhibitions/magicpencil/home.html
An exhibit from the British Library. The site describes itself as, "Magic Pencil – Children’s Book Illustration Today is a display of more than 300 paintings and drawings for children by Britain’s ‘starriest’ illustrators. It examines how and why they work. It also shows that the strong tradition of British children's book illustration is actively flourishing in the 21st century." Overall the site is well designed and really neat.


"Recess!" is a co-production of the University of Florida's Center for Children's Literature and Culture and WUFT-FM, "Classic 89."
