Renne Benoit, Illustrator

Okay, I've cheated again. Renne Benoit is no new talent on the picture book scene. But most of her books are published by Canadian houses, so I thought it would be a good idea to feature her here.

The truth is, I found one of her books through Perfect Picture Book Friday, and was so blown away by her striking colors and technique, that I needed an excuse to shout about her work.
In fact, I'm going to let her work speak for itself. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Rhythm. "Proud as a Peacock" was new to me too when I started researching Renne's work. It's a book with an interesting concept, beautifully illustrated. Enjoy!
