10 To 2 Children's Books is the house that Bill built, Bill the bat that is.
In 2004 we asked an unknown Italian illustrator to come up with some ideas for a story we had called "Bill the Bat Finds His Way Home" and a few days later Bill the Bat was born.
Bill the Bat Loves Halloween
Every picture book needs a well written story. But most importantly the story needs an illustrator that can see beyond the text to visually draw the young reader in.
Bill the Bat Baby Sits Bella
Manuela Pentangelo has created characters for the Bill the bat stories that are fun, original and a bit goofy. Her illustrations prove to us daily that there is still a child within all of us and that child is simply resting, waiting for the perfect moment to come out and play.
Kirkus Reviews has sited her work, saying-- "Pentangelo’s illustrations are rich with color and detail and full of little quirks to discuss." (Bill the Bat series) and "Artist
Pentangelo’s colorful, playfully skewed images underscore the text’s
comical tone and contain numerous small details that attentive readers
will enjoy."(Greta's Magical Mistake)
All of our artist in their own way have created beautiful visuals that help accentuate the narratives.
Kirkus Review says that Carla Castango's illustrations [Help make] "...Danny’s search for Sue humorous, and it’s rendered with lively drawings. The light, whimsical drawings maintain a sense of fun."
WhileKirkus Review says that "[Mishka]
Jaeger’s illustrations give the night a soft, beautiful glow,
complementing Cobb’s text and simultaneously convincing both Mr. Moon
and the reader that nighttime is a magical time. Her personifications of
Mr. Moon and Mr. Sun are utterly delightful..."
These comments are indicative of the things that are said about all of are artist. From the quality of the writing, to the sense of adventure and imagination in every illustration. The work speaks for itself, but I would be lying to say that we don't enjoy hearing it from time to time.
Bill the bat put 10 To 2 Children's Books on the radar and now children from around the country are all discovering our books!
