Julie Klear Essakalli, designer of Zid zid Kids, is also an illustrator. I featured the book The Butter Man on Bubble news and trends last year, after the book she illustrated  won the Children’s Africana Book Award. I just discovered that Julie has an incredible vintage children’s book collection, most of them found in Morocco where shelives with her family. I couldn’t resist sharing one of her many treasures, The country bunny and the little gold shoes. Wonderful story, and absolutely delightful drawings.  Happy belated Easter!
