Book Fair


















My son's school had their Scholastic Book Fair today. He picked out many books, but I bought one for myself, too — For The Love of Basketball: From A to Z, written by Frederick C. Klein, illustrated by Mark W. Anderson.

I'm not into basketball at all. I don't play, I don't watch, I don't discuss it . . . ever. And I'm not familiar with the author or illustrator. But I LOVED the illustrations! Crisp, fun, spontaneous. And the illustration of Shaquille O'Neal, outstanding!

Interesting, though. I could not find one image of this book on the internet to post in this blog. No mention of it on Amazon, Goodreads, anywhere. Too bad, it's a great book.
