Mike Curato’s debut LITTLE ELLIOT, BIG CITY


 Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group introduces Little Elliot, a charming new picture book character with more books to follow in 2015 and 2016.  

Macmillian Children’s Publishing Group will publish debut author Mike Curato’s Little Elliot, Big City on August 26, 2014 (Henry Holt BYR), the first in a series of Little Elliot picture books with more to follow in 2015 and 2016. In this first book, readers are introduced to Little Elliot, a little polka-dotted elephant living in a big city in search of a good friend. Just perfect for children ages 4-8.

We received this book to review and Elliot is an adorable character that children will be delighted with and adults will like him too! The illustrations are quite captivating and loved the simple story of friendship and cupcakes, which is a delightful combination by the way! I can’t wait to see future stories with Elliot the polka-dotted elephant!

Mike Curato is a new artist to watch. His cinematic illustrations, with their gorgeous retro-noir style, are distinctive and beautiful.

Little Elliot, Big City is on sale next Tuesday, August 26! To find out where to buy, check it out here.

Self Disclosure: I received an advanced readers edition of the book to facilitate this feature.
