|Mailing May by Michael O. Tunnel and Ted Rand|
They'll send her by post, of course!
Ted Rand's detailed watercolor illustrations perfectly set the scene as May travels seventy-five miles in the mail car of a train. My copy has great historical details and photos in the back. Ted Rand's illustration style varies, but always shows masterful technique. Check out some of his other books: Here Are My Hands, My Shadow, If Not For The Cat, and the classic, Knots on a Counting Rope.
Michael O'Grady Tunnell is both author and teacher. His love of children's literature spans all genres. I enjoy his books, like Wishing Moon, but his work really shines when he writes non-fiction. I love The Candy Bomber. If you don't know the story of Col. Gail Halvorsen, this is a recommended read.
