The Very Big Carrot: 11/26/13
The Very Big Carrot by Satoe Tone was originally published in France as La très grande carotte.
Six white rabbits, shovels and buckets in hand, find a huge carrot. It's bigger than they are. It's long enough that it takes all six to carry it. It will also take a unique plan to use it.
Some ideas are tossed around: boat, airplane, floating garden, a house?
It's the intricate, whimsical illustrations that make this book special. The layers of shapes, soft oranges and greens mostly, remind me of medieval tapestries.
