Cooper Edens is a special sort of author/illustrator. He is best known for his "horizontal storytelling" where the reader solves the string of "problems"... as can be seen in one of my very favorite gift-giving books (for people of ALL ages): If You're Afraid of the Dark, Remember the Night Rainbow.
Well Edens thought it would be special to make a hall-of-fame picture book... one that celebrates many of the fantastic illustrators of picture book past and does a blessed fine job of it.
The Glorious ABC is a lovely diversion in picture book time travel. I had such a delightful time going through this book... and I wondered about how much fun it would be to come up with my own picture book titles "Hall of Fame" for each letter of the alphabet. Possible I'm sure... and so many possibilities!
