Jimmy Has Lost His Cap, Where Can It Be?
Bruno Munari ~ World Publishing, 1945
Since I just gave this book away in a trade and since the always fabulous atelier pour enfants just blogged about it and since Monday is always a great day for everything, I figured, why not? No?
Bruno Munari was a much loved Italian designer who dabbled in children's books, creating wonderful eye candy for wee ones (and their parents). One of my son's first book loves was the reprint of Bruno Munari's Zoo that still gets a ton of play with him even at almost six... though I enjoy the more abstract titles like From Afar It Is An Island. No matter.
Here we meet Jimmy, who has lost his cap, and you, the reader, are invited into a lift-the-flap search among everyday items which are in no way commonplace.
All of his books are playful and fun, and in every one, you will find the unexpected. I never, ever meet a Munari book without buying it. EVER.
