“Children of the Earth” – written by Amy Churba.
Illustration and Book Design by Bob Paltrow.
The author’s objective with the illustration style was tobe minimalistic, as if a child had illustrated the book, as well as non-specific anatomical features for the 4 children (characters) in the book. The non-specificity was intended as a visual ‘blank canvas’ upon which a young reader could render their own mental age of the personality of each character. Published by Pleiades Publishing, 1998. 32 pages, ages 4 and up.
