Gris Grimly Presents Old MacDonald Had A Farm
Come one, come all!
Gris Grimly has a new book this fall.
About the Book: A wholly original take on this beloved American anthem from renowned watercolor master, Gris Grimly -- with a surprise twist ending bound to delight!
Celebrated creator Gris Grimly, widely known for his gothic style illustrations, turns over a new creative leaf in his glorious interpretation of this beloved preschool anthem. Inspired by his son's love for Old MacDonald, his own family's farming history, and with stunning, sweeping watercolor illustrations, Gris brings this beloved song to glorious new life.
About the Author: Gris Grimly is a celebrated painter, sculptor, and filmmaker who has created a rich collection of spooky picture books, including the Wicked Nursery Rhymes trilogy and his own retellings of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Frankenstein. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and a young son, whose love of Old MacDonald inspired Gris to reimagine this childhood classic.
Readers will enjoy terrific descriptions, action-packed adventure and a superb sense of the brutality, harshness but beauty of the wintery existence that surrounds these characters. It's no wonder dogs are descended from misunderstood wolves, as the bravery and ultimate loyalty of these canines can not be refuted. As with Rooftoppers, Rundell lets readers truly inhabit her world and are fully invested in this satisfying tale. Highly reommended! - Maureen
