Swan Bones Theater

One of my very favorite artists- Kelly Louise Judd created illustrations for a children's book about faeries: 13 Treasures, by Michelle Harrison, that was just released.  If you have never looked at Kelly's beautiful paintings and illustrations- you are really missing out!  She is an amazing artist who seems to pull from fairy tale, myth and dreams to create the most lovely paintings.  She is truly an inspiration!  

And.. who can resist a faerie book?!  The book sounds wonderful: "No one else can see the evil fairies that rouse Tanya from her sleep, torturing her at the slightest mention of their existence, but they are as real to the 13-year-old as anything she's ever known. She cannot rid herself of them, nor can she ignore them. But it is her insistence on responding to them that has her banished to her grandmother's secluded countryside manor.

There is much to explore and even more to fear in the woods surrounding the estate. But, the forest isn't the only source of dark secrets, and Tanya soon finds herself entangled in a mystery that could trap her in the fairy realm forever."

I can't wait to buy a copy of this!
