OSCAR, THE BIG WHITE HORSE (WHO DIDN’T KNOW HE WAS BIG)
Remember last week when I went to my friend’s house and came upon her horse, Sam, in colic?
Well, I was going there that day to pick up THIS BOOK! Yup, hot off the presses! Leslie had a few copies in her office and I nabbed one. It is brand new!
Oscar is one of Leslie’s own beloved horses.
WHY I THINK IT IS A GREAT DEAL… Bang for buck, Kids love it…!
1) Great deal for adults…
I think this is a GREAT deal because so many of Leslie’s famous paintings are included!!!! Plus, you get a bunch of new images! I know these aren’t originals, but heck, a program for a Theater Play costs more… and in this book, you have pages and pages of Leslie’s art.
If you are a Leslie Anne Webb fan, this is a great way to obtain several of her pieces!
2) Kids love it! (Ages 2 – 7)
I’ve heard from several book store owners that little kids totally respond to the images, the colors and the story.
3) The story:
The story is universal… Basically, Oscar was always happy as a young horse… until others told him that he was too big to do the dexterous and fun stuff he was doing. That made Oscar sad. Then one night he had a dream that helped him realize that just because he is BIG doesn’t mean he can’t do things… And then Oscar was happy again!
4) The diversity.
Leslie uses several different methods of illustration. As you can see above: pastels, watercolor, full color, partial color… it is delightful to have every page be different!
MY FAVORITE PAGES…
Here are my favorite pages… but there are many pages so you be the judge!
