I am a Beluga Buddy!

I wanted to share with you all a most WONDERFUL book I received (I won!) from the amazingly talented writer and illustrator extraordinaire, Scott Magoon. Mr. Magoon has been writing and illustrating books for young readers since 2007, and has designed and art directed books since 2003 formerly for Candlewick Press and now Houghton Mifflin. If you have a chance, swing by his wonderful site and check out his amazing work!

Scott's newest beauty is Breathe. Simply put, this book is LOVELY.  I so appreciate the message that he brings out through the sweet baby beluga whale and its friends (narwhal!, penguins, jellyfish), its momma, and the beautiful artic environment. The illustrations are magical..take a look:
 If you have a chance, visit your local bookshop and grab a is a wonderful book for young readers (and old! :))...for more information, or to grab a copy online, visit:
