Last week, we launched Black Holes and Parallel Universes: Marvels of Science and Speculative Fiction. Today, I’m happy to share another set of reading materials for our new theme. I wanted to find as many picturebooks for our theme as I could. If you know of any steampunk-themed picturebooks, please let us know. We’d truly appreciate it.

  2. Wow, Fats, I can’t believe this selection of books, and I’m always shocked by how often you gals put up books I’ve never heard of or seen before and ultimately am SO glad you posted them! I never saw the two that Dan Santat illustrated and Mac Barnett is great, so I’ll definitely be checking them out, along with many others. Thank you!!! 😀
