“The Rain Puddle”, Illustrated by Roger Duvoisin

“The Rain Puddle”, 1965, was written by Adelaide Holl, and was illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, and his is The Illustrator Of The Day at my Etsy shop.

You can learn more about Roger Duvoisin here, but you would probably recognize his illustrations of such children’s classics as “Happy Lion” (written by his wife, Louise Fatio), and “Petunia”. He won a Caldecott Award for “White Snow Bright Snow”, written by Alvin Tresselt, in 1948, and he won a Caldecott Honor Award for “Hide and Seek Fog”, 1966.

“His virtuoso technique with line and color separations made by hand became legendary in the field.”

His illustrations are sharp and colorful and fit in with today’s modern style.

I have this and one other illustration up for sale.


About Gotcha Cha Cha

Hello, I am making this blog to complement my store on Etsy. I sell "found" art and lovely illustrations from unusable vintage books. I also love my 2 cats (Lupe and Cha Cha, hence the inspiration for the store/blog name) and one dog (Daisy a beagle), not to mention my 2 school age daughters, and my husband who can draw anything and does that for a living.
