There are a few picture book illustrations that depict a certain style of carefully conceived world and I want to take a running jump and see if I might just be able to step through the pages. Literally. Have you ever felt that way about a picture book?
These types of books are few and far between and I don’t even necessarily call them my favorite books (although I love them) or the ones with the best illustrations. However, they have a specific draw (pun intended) and I’d really like to take a stroll through them.

Here are three:
Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip. Miniature magical creatures, autumnal loveliness.
Christmas in Noisy Village. Swedish Christmas goodness. Plus, gingerbread pigs are delicious so I wouldn’t get hungry.
What illustrations do you wish would transport you away?
