Great Illustrations

I was looking over some of my favourite picture books from childhood, and was struck by the gorgeous illustrations:

From ‘The Happy Lion’ by Louise Fatio, illustrations by Roger Duvoisin

From ‘Whistle for Willie’ by Ezra Jack Keats

From ‘My Red Umbrella’ by Robert Bright

‘The Happy Lion’ is the only one still in print – I heartily recommend it. It made me laugh even looking at it now. Do you have any fondly remembered favourites?
