The Little Crooked Bookshelf


by Christoph Niemann

This week's pick is from cottager Kara LaReau.

What it's all about
More than three hundred words are brilliantly (and wryly) portrayed in this book by master illustrator, designer, animator, and author Christoph Niemann.

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf…
My almost-four-year-old is OBSESSED with letters and words. And my husband and I recently (and gleefully) binged on the new Netflix series, Abstract: The Art of Design, which features Mr. Niemann, among other renowned designers. So this is a book we can all enjoy!

A sample illustration…

Why kids will love it…
It's a world of words to pore over, in a style that's colorful, graphic, and fun.

Why grown-ups will love it…
Niemann's word and image pairings convey both the simple and the complex, and encourage readers of all ages to take the time to consider (and celebrate) our language.
