Lane Smith is an illustrator and writer of children’s books. He’s also a very, very funny man who runs Curious Pages, a blog about bizarre books for children. His commentary is fantastic, and he also turns up some genuinely beautiful examples such as The Little Red Engine series or this collection of Martin and Alice Provensen work.
