EVERGREEN written and illustrated by Matthew Cordell

Current standards in picture book recommend that writers keep their word counts to 600 or less. I miss longer picture books that allow for richer language and periodic illustrations but Matthew Cordell does even better in EVERGREEN. The book is a strong animal heroine whose courage mounts in her desire to bring a healing soup to her grandmother. Cordell’s detailed pictures add to the charm of the forest and its creatures.
