An Eye For Annai

October 8, 2012

By Carter.

Jon Klassen stormed the stage of children’s literature in 2011 with his polarizing masterpiece, I Want My Hat Back, and created gorgeous scanned sweater illustrations in Extra Yarn. If you’re a humongous fan like I am, mark your calendars for next Tuesday and the availability of his latest release, This Is Not My Hat. (The cover is stunning, isn’t it?)

But once upon a time, before he was a star, Jon Klassen was an art student. And once upon a time, before you stacked his books on your shelf, he created this animated masterpiece, An Eye For Annai:

Doesn’t that make your heart smile?

P.S. Speaking of I Want My Hat Back, are you Team Rabbit or Team Bear?
